I have just been for my half yearly check up, the doctor has reviewed my pacemaker & analysed the recorded information on the PM, he has stated he is very happy with everything he sees & has given me the all clear to go travelling & engage in activities I enjoy, cycling & climbing etc.. With the guidance that I will now only require one yearly check up.
However, during my check ups I constantly state that I enjoy being active & enquire about optimal settings to be made to my PM, some of which were made last year.
However my upper tracking limit is set at 145, which seems quite low certainly for an active person, he is reluctant to increase the setting.
What is the potential reasoning for this reluctance? As I feel that having it set higher may help facilitate better excerise outcomes, certainly when I need to really push physical. From my research on this forum a lot of upper limits seem to be set around the 160 mark, for cyclist.
Any thoughts would be very much appreciated
