Playing golf post op CRT D

I tried searching for playing golf post op but there is nothing. I assume its OK surely, after several weeks maybe.

Search for “Golf” since “playing golf” probably won’t find posts

UPDATE  A month is too soon to do a full swing apparently!  Some use a half-swing at 6 weeks and a cautious full swing at 8 weeks

Very soon

I had mine put in on Christmas Eve and believe I played golf very soon after, like maybe when the stitches healed. At a pacer check up I  told cardio that this was great as I used to get very tired around the 15-16th  hole and now I don't notice any fatigue. He said you are only using it 13% and i said thats fine, it gets my a full 18.

Once MD says ok

My EP gave me the all clear at 4 weeks post op. But it really depends on lead placement and type. So ask your MD. You will be able to golf again! :)
