I have a small hole in the heart that produced me skin bend in 2 oportunities. Descompresion Illness. I'll have the hole close with a device.
I exercise 4 times a week for 2,5 hours each time more or less. 30 minutes walking fast in the treadmill (never running), 1 hour doing a typical gym rutine, abdominal, power plate, biceps, triceps lifting no more than 15 kgs if !, exercises with balls, etc etc and 45 minutes of spinning.
Dr today told me I have to slow down for 6 weeks more or less but he wasnt very specific. What means Slow down? do nothing at all ? can I carry on walking in the tradmill at least ? exercises lifting less than 10 kg? what about the spinning ? My spinning trainer had the surgery and she started teaching after 2 weeks of the surgery ! and her hole was much bigger than mine. Please advice and let me know. This exercise "thing" is very important for me.
I am not sure what your question is. If you want to know if exercise will be limited after the surgery then yes initially it will be limited, but afterward you can exercise until you feel short of breath. Decompression illness is a major problem because of the possibility of a right to left embolic event. This should not be an issue once the PFO is closed.
