Sub-pectoral PM Recovery
I am due to have my first replacement PM in 3 weeks, the first one was placed sub-pectoral and lasted 12 years with no problems.
As it was so long since I had the inital implantation, my memory of the recovery is a little hazy. I was 15 years old and a competitive gymnast at the time and I remember it taking around 6 weeks to lift my arm up above my head and even longer to hang off a bar and pull up etc.
I am incredibly fit and active and my job is physical so I would really like to hear from any of you who have had your PM placed sub-pectoral and how you found the recovery process, as I am currently trying to assess how much time I will need off work. My main concerns are; how long did it take you to lift your arm above your head, how long did it take before you could bear weight on that arm/lift weight/hang off a bar and can you drive afterwards?
Any help, advice or anecdotes would be really appreciated, thank you.
