Cycling with a pacemaker

I had a pacemaker fitted 2 weeks ago due to complete heart block. Basically the electrical signal from my natural pacemaker was not reaching my heart. This occurs when at rest, below 50 bpm. This happened 4 times in a day and I had zero issues prior to that eventful day. To say it was a shock is an understatement.

Anyway, can anyone here share stories of their recover after receiving a pacemaker please? It’s only been 2 weeks but I’m champing at the bit to test my heart out. I’m actually feeling strong. Unfortunately I’m under strict instructions to stay off the bike for 3 months.

I’ve got a follow up with the cardiologist next week so will try and get some answers as to why this all happened, and see if we can compromise the 3 month cycling ban.
