Can my mother exercise after pace-maker implantation?
Q: My 70 years old mother got a heart pace-maker implanted last month. She is improving day by day. What type of physical activities and exercises can she do?
A:I think after four weeks of pacemaker implantation, a person can indulge in any and every kind of physical activity and there are no bars on walking at all. In any case, at her age, her requirements for exercise and physical activities are at best going to be moderate in intensity, which most certainly can be undertaken after pacemaker implantation.
