exercise after a pacemaker
I had my dual chamber fitted 7weeks ago after a diagnosis of Bradi/Tachi. I haven’t been given a follow up appointment as yet and there are questions I need to ask. I Nordic walk for exercise but not sure how long I need to wait before doing this , a bit worried that the impact of the poles striking the ground might dislodge the wires into my heart. Although I feel well and quite recovered I have the occasional sudden drop in blood pressure which makes me feel faint and breathless, my blood pressure returns to normal within an hour or two. My pulse rate ranges between 50 and 55 beats/ minute, I take Bisoprolol 2.5mgs daily and Apixaban 5mgs twice a day. Does anyone else experience these symptoms? Thank you
You know you're wired when...
You can finally prove that you have a heart.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
