To all the girls

Hey girls! Im very interested in reducing cellulite on my legs as I haven't been working out because of bradycardia (I was scared). I am 1.70cm and 53kg, I am skinny but not "fit", which I dont like and recently Iam interested in doing a treatment for cellulite and body sculpting. Is it safe for us with pacemaker? Has any of you tried a body treatment before? What is safe for pacemakers?

The excercise way is better for our bodies, now that you have a pacemaker , hopefully you will start moving around now that your low heartbeat in under control.

Lorina - you've been through so much with dealing with bradycardia and pacemaker implant - if I may suggest, consider if a friend in a similar situation came to you and expressed dissatifaction with their physical appearance. In that case, would you suggest a treatment in which you don't have confidence in terms of safety, or would you instead suggest that they try to move their body more?  Doesn't have to be extreme exercise - getting outside (or inside as necessary) and walking is a fine way to start to get back to where you were.

Your pacemaker is not fragile--and neither are you.

I sympathize. Undiagnosed bradycardia had turned me into a couch potato. Though not overweight, once I got the pacemaker and was finally feeling better I was eager to reclaim my life. 

As you know, cellulite (litle fat lumps just under the skin mostly on the thighs and hips) aren't caused by overweight and aren't improved by exercise. They are a result of bad luck in the gene lottery. 

For most everyone, but women especially, when you look better, you feel better. So while you try to make what changes you can to how you look, here's what you need to know. Your pacemaker is not fragile and having a pacemaker doesn't make YOU fragile.

If you want to try machines advertised for cellulite reduction/ body sculpting, go for it. Appliances made for domestic use are safe for people with pacemakers.But if you ever wonder if something is completely safe, just keep the appliance 6 inches away from the pacemaker. Your hips and thighs are further away than that.

But in the unlikely even that something does come too close to your pacemaker and cause interference, it will not damage the pacemaker at all. You'll feel that funny feeling like when they interrogate your device. Simply move away, or move the source away--just 6 inches. You'll feel fine and all willl be well. 

So get out there. Get going. Enjoy your life. And don't waste one minute wondering if you need to be careful because you have a pacemaker.

Thank youu!

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
