Hello there....., In most cases, having a pacemaker won't limit you from doing sports and exercise, including strenuous activities... As your hernia operation is conducted with the local spinal anesthesia, there won't be any systemic side effects... But however there are some risks involved in the procedure.... Your surgeon will explain about the risks and results...
