Post op. Raising arm.
I am recovering from having an ICD fitted a couple of days ago. I have been strict and disappointed with doctors orders however I recently woke from an afternoon nap and stretched out lifting my arm higher than it’s supposed to go.
I’m a bit paranoid about this as I know lifting your arm increases the chances of dislodging the leads. Perhaps I’m overeacting but as I can get hold of the nurse I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge on how sensitive these leads are in the early days and what the likelyhood is that slightly over extending can dislodge a lead ?
Thanks in advance.
