After the healing process dictated by your doctor there are no restrictions. Make SURE you specify again and again the shoulder where you want the implant.

I had a defibrillator/pacer implanted 10 years ago. I am right handed and I told the docs that it HAD to be in my left side. The docs told me that sometimes that could be difficult and that they *might* have to use the right shoulder. I told him I wouldn't sign a release unless my stipulations were followed. My doc grumbled a bit but sure enough it ended up in the correct place.

Don't worry, it's not a big deal.

Cheers,

Jerry
