I had to have a pacemaker fitted last Thursday for heart block. It was a bit of a shock because they rung me on the Monday and got me straight in.
I am a competative amateur cyclist and normal for me is on my bike most days, the advise from consultant and electrophysiologist has been confusing to say the least - obviously concerned with usual advise about not putting your arm up above shoulder hight for 4 - 6 weeks - i get that - i dont want to pull the wires out.
Are there any atheletes amongst you that can tell me your experiences of how quickly you got back to your sport please.
My arm and wound site are pretty sore - but my legs are fine!
