PACEMAKER & SHOOTING SPORTS
I'm a new member of the Pacemaker Club and I'd like to ask, about sports: I'm 62 years old and I had a pacemaker implant 4 months ago, with (2) electrodes, due to bradycardia. I have been involved in the sport of shooting with a shotgun for many years, but now my doctor tells me to avoid it, because it is possible that the pacemaker will be adversely affected by the reloading(recoiling) of the weapon. Is there another member with a pacemaker who is involved in shooting or hunting, who can inform about practical issues?
Thanks in advance
