Hey guys, I had a pacemaker fitted 12 weeks ago, but never had a post-op check up due to the current circumstances. I am 24 years old and was physically active before my op. I have started running again, and everything is normal apart from struggling running up hills. Is this because my heart can't work at the intensity it used to? Also, I want to start lifting weights again, but anxious when is too soon? I have done tough mudder multiple times and my consultant said i can continue this, but unsure when I can get back to my normal routine and what i can and can't do.
I am just a little lost as i haven't had any guidance and i don't know anybody with a pacemaker. So i don't know what normal is.
Any stories or guidance about any exercise or symptoms people have with a pacemaker would be really appreciated
Thank you x
