Question -- about sports with a pacemaker
I'm totally new to this site and could use some advice if you have time to share.
I just turned 60. I will need a pacemaker. I never passed out but did get ligh-headed a few times in the last year. The doctor monitored me for 14 days a Zio patch and my heart stopped 3 times for 1 second each. My normal beats were around 49-61 beats per min. I avoided all sports during the monitoring period. My recent stress test was normal 14 minutes on the treadmill and a normal echo. The doctor indicate that I have an electrical signal problem within my heart.
It would so helpful if others can share their experience. Thank You So Much.
Can I play sports with a pacemaker? I'm very active in softball, swimming, running and ballroom dancing.
Can I drink alcohol with a pacemaker? We normally have a glass of wine at dinner or a couple beers after a softball game.
What are my restrictions with a pacemaker?
I also work in a data center where this high voltage, would this cause a problem to the PM?
