I'm not familar with this particular type of support stockings, Daisy, but the typical guideline is "if in doubt, keep the (insert consumer product of discussion) 6 inches from the PM."  I personally think the stockings would present no problem, even if the wearer is flexible enough to get the stockings within 6 inches of the PM while the stockings are on their legs.

No problem but they are a ripoff.  Support stockings can work wonders.  Copper, makes the marketing department happy.

I actually bought some of these. I didn't care about the copper but I was in a hurry, and they were the only support stockings my size in stock.

Made no difference whatsover to my pacemake, but then I never thought they might.

You read or hear about all these things you must avoid if you have a a pacemaker but most of it is simply not true. Pacemakers are not fragile. There is practically nothing you can do to accidentally damage your pacemaker or cause it to malfunction.

Life is full enough of real dangers--like getting in a car. Don't burden yourself with unreal fear that something is out to get your pacemaker. Pacemakers are wonderfully dependable and reliable and are made to go with us anywhere we can safely go (or wear.)

You know you're wired when...

Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.

I wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for pacemakers. I've had mine for 35+ years. I was fainting all of the time and had flat-lined also. I feel very blessed to live in this time of technology.
