Boston Scientific settings for swimming
I am 73 years old and a long time swimmer. I had a PM replacement last May after I broke a wire in my Medtronic setup implanted in 12/18 for SSS. I had been frustrated in the pool but was making progress. My EP and I agreed that the Boston Scientific Accolade would be a better device for me. At this point, it is not. I am something like 7-10% off my previous performance levels. My bad days are really bad and seem to occur randomly. My land based activities seem to be ok and maybe better in some cases. I rarely measure those but I know my way around a pool and I know when it's not right. My HR after a strong effort is typically about 96.
I shoud also say that I have "mild" Myelodysplastic Syndrome and my hemoglobin is low (latest 10.8) so there may be more than one thing affecting perfomance. Those levels have not changed much in the last year.
I see my EP on 4/11. If anyone on this forum knows of anyone who has the same device and is a satisfied swimmer, I would be very interested in their settings so I could share that information.
I woud be grateful for any input.
