Post implant exercising

How long after implant can you golf as long as you swing very easy? My doc saying 4-6 weeks. I've also read several places 2-3 weeks, going at it easy.

My county has more golf courses per capita than anywhere else in the US so my ep's instructions include golf. Chip, pitch, putt whenever we feel up to it. 3 months for a full swing. Any other exercise is ok at 6 weeks.

Both my EP and cardiology nurse said 3 months for full swing. I swung a pitching wedge today. It's been almost 2 months and I felt a strange pull and the leads hit my armpit... I got a little afraid so I stopped. I'll wait for 4 months.  Both my brother and his wife are doctors. They too said 3 months. That is what my brother recommends to his patients.... good luck.
