Work Restrictions after PM
Hello all! I am a newbie and will be getting a Pacemaker in the first week in June. I work in Healthcare in the OR as a Surgical Assistant and do much bending,strecthing, and lifting patients, and work with cautery etc... I am concerned that obviously the first month i will be very limitied as too what i can do, but i am concerned about how this will affect the future as well? If anyone out there who is in the same field or anyone who could offer advice, i would certianly would like to hear as how you dealt with it, how did you break it to your employer, and how it changed what you could and couldn't do, and if you had to make a career change? I am getting this done on a Friday and will be staying overnight. Did any of you take a couple of more days off, prior to going back to work?
