Jay, I have to agree with you, 2017 has not been your year. If you will remember I had told you about my husband having a pacemaker put in for bad Afib. This was 2-3 years ago. He was exhausted all the time, I am talking it took a lot for him to walk across the room, plus he was getting very dizzy & was falling a lot!! If he rode down to the store & back he was so tired he would sit in his truck for a good 15 minutes before he could get in the house. He has a Boston Scientist Pacemaker. He has not ever had this shocking sensation thing. He is a pretty big guy & strong as a bull moose, so yeah he is prone to doing some lifting of heavy stuff. My brother had one put in no problems like that either. My brother did have some really bad bruising afterwards, much more than my husbands. We do have a friend that has had a pacemaker a good 20 years or more & none of his ever shocked him either. So, here is 3 examples of guys with pacemakers that have never had the shocking thing. Makes me wonder if the other guys pacemaker was defective.
I would ask the dr about the weights you lift & how frequent at work to just double check things. I know you will be restricted until things heal up so thats another question to ask him.
