pain weights

I do have osteoporosis and would like to know if their are any light weight upper body exercises I could do without bothering my pm which is not quite three months old. Also, do any of you get slight pain in the pacemaker site occasionally or when you are anxious about anything at all? Would love your input... thanks... aldeer

exercises

hi aldeer, good for you that you want to exercise! I' m not certain how familar you are with exercising or if you have done it before, if this is all new to you make sure you get an OK from the MD. Some specifics would be bicep curls, shoulder flexion to shoulder ht., shoulder Abduction to shoulder ht. , rows, shoulder shrugs, triceps , upright rows, shoulder extension and that's about all I can think of right at the moment. If you need specific instructions you can private message me back and I'd be happy to help you . Hope that helps. Let us know how it goes.

As for my pacemaker (almost 7 years old) I like to think of it in the terms of the old Timex commercial - takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
