What Are The Risks Of Riding Rollercoasters For A Person With Pacemaker
None: There are no risks unless they come very close to a powerful magnet which I do not think happens while you're riding a roller coaster. Even if you did however, nothing bad will happen and as soon as you walk away from the magnet, things go back to normal.See 1 more doctor answer
A pacemaker is a device which sends electrical signals to the heart triggering heartbeats when needed. There are many ways to implant and configure a pacemaker; it may beat the top chambers (atria), lower chambers (ventricles) or both.

My father is 84 and just had apacemaker fitted, he regularly consumes 1 to 2 litres of wine daily what are the risks?

PPM and NSAID.: As long as it hasn’t literally just been put in, I do not see the presence of a pacemaker in and of itself is a contraindication to use of anti-inflammatory analgesic medications.
Maybe but why: The lemon cleanse diet provides less than a 1000 calories per day and is woefully low in vital nutrients for the time you are on it. If your electrolytes (sodium, potassium particularly) get altered on the diet, it may affect your heart beat or possibly predispose to heart rhythm problems. This could be an additional risk of this diet. Also, risk depends on other underlying medical conditions.
Pacemaker: The underlying disease causing need for a pacemaker is the reason why a lemon cleanse may or may not be ok for the patient.
No: The main indication of implanting a pacemaker is symptomatic bradyarrhythmia.

Discussing pacemaker with physician tomorrow. Are there any long term risks associated with PM implantation in a young person? Future implocations?
There are: It would benefit you if you have to have a pacemaker placed that it be MRI compatible, as you may need an MRI later in the future. Also, make sure you are aware of future surgical needs like for battery pack changes. There are other possible complications like lead fracture/breaks, lead misplacement, etc.

Life with pacemaker: Pacers simply replace the electrical system in the heart but do not shorten life expectancy. Other heart issues like significant coronary/valve disease or congestive heart failure are the main heart issues that affect life expectancy. If placed for slow heart rates (sick sinus syndrome) or heart block then no specific reduction in life expectancy is noted.See 1 more doctor answer
