    What should I expect after ICD implantation?

    There is usually only minimal pain after implantation and perhaps some mild swelling at the site. You will be given some pain medication to be used if needed. You will typically wear a sling for a few days. you should avoid lifting over 10 lb and keep the elbow below shoulder level for 3 weeks. Avoid extremely vigorous activity like a full golf swing for a couple of months more. You will typically be seen in the office within the next couple of weeks, but in the end, ICDs are followed usually in our device clinic between once and twice a year. Home monitoring is also available to augment office checks.
