What to ask?
So I visited my doctor that handles my interrogation of my pacemaker(I dont know if they are called EP)last week and advised me not to do upper body exercises like push ups and pull ups since they flex and extend my shoulder and could make leads bend and cause wear and tears on them, my doctor said it would cause the leads to be dislodge, it isnt a high chance but theres a possibility. Though people in these forum encourage me not to worry and its ok to do these and I'm grateful and happy and I want to do upper exercises since I want to be strong while also having good aestethics, I dont want to be like a flat boards and look skinny, but I still have to ask my doctor about it.
I was doing push up and pulling exercise for a few months now since my doctor(same hospital) from the OPD section told me it fine to do these exercise and even barbells so I procceed to do it, this doctor also knows I have a pacemaker.
My appointment with my doctor would only last 5 - 10 minutes somtimes even less as I dont know what to ask. So what questions should I ask before safetly continue doing these exercises? What information do I need regarding my pacemaker and leads? Also I notice that they increase the volts of my pacemaker over the course of almost 2 and a half years, what does increasing volts purpose and why they do it? And hopefully I could my doctors through call or text since my doctors give their personal numbers. Im age 21, male and havd this pacemaker impnated since late 2018 by the way. Thanks :)
