Can I play golf after 6 weeks?

Hi Everyone,
This Thursday will be the last day of week 6 for me, that means I have my PM for 6 weeks now, well almost 6 weeks!
So my question is, can I start golfing? I am not taking any medication or other health issue, all I am worry about is repositioning the PM lead. Mine is VDD single.
Please advise.
Rob

hi rob,
what does your dr. say? i personally would wait a bit longer. i've had a lead come out of place and it was very painful and it required another surgery.

chipping and putting i would think would be ok. a big full swing...i don't know. can you play best ball for a little bit?

Ask your doctor

Welcome to the club! When you can resume golfing is something you should discuss with your doctor.

with golfing i would ask your doctor. i was told i chip and putt but a full swing no. he did tell me to-day that i could go to curves 3x aweek but also workout gradually and that it was okay to do that. so everyone is different and it is my age too so i would ask jessie

Golf after 6 weeks

Playing golf so soon just after 6 weeks seem too early. I was advised to stay away from golf for at least 3 months. Initially when I resumed golfing, it was a mental battle too, as I had to deal with a lot of personal doubts as I "blamed" every little discomfort for fear of the leads being unplugged. Now that I look back, I agree with luckyloo that keeping the feel in chipping and putting would be okay at 6 weeks and move real gradually on to a full swing in a couple of more weeks.

On my pamphlet thingy, it mentioned golf as one of the things you should ask your doctor about before playing again.
I guess a lot of pacers are golfers.....I think I need to go buy some equipment and join the gang, lol.
glad you're feeling up to it though. That's a good sign.
take care,
