Operating a Lawn Mower Just Weeks After BV ICD Implant Surgery
This is kind of a follow up to my earlier post on operating a lawn mower or weed whacker. I am over three weeks post surgery and my grass is growing fast. I want to cut it, but discharge instructions said no lifting anything over ten pounds for six weeks. Does anyone know if operating a lawn mower too early would be an issue? Not sure if pulling and pushing would be the same as lifting? Is the lifting a concern with the leads pulling out, or is it a concern with the incision opening up? Thanks.

Lifetime warranty no longer gives peace of mind.
At age 20, I will be getting a pacemaker in few weeks along with an SA node ablation. This opportunity may change a five year prognosis into a normal life span! I look forward to being a little old lady with a wicked cane!
