pacemaker will help a patient live a more active and normal life with little to no inconvenience. Playing basket ball not possible.

Pace maker is like an artificial heart which does all the functions of heart like pumping the blood. It works just like the normal heart. the person can perform all activities so no need to worry

My husband has a pacemaker and is very active, playing tennis regularly and exercising. In the past couple of days, he's been experiencing some chest pain during exercise, but not after exercise.

My uncle is 92 years old, never been sick, and has all of his faculties. Recently he has been having "episodes" where he becomes light headed and has even passed out for a time. Doctors are monitoring his heart medication and thinking about a pacemaker. Is he too old to consider this?
