Having just had a ICD (defibrillator) implanted in my left chest/clavicle area a week ago I'm just wondering how long it's taken others for the implant location to heal and how long I can expect left shoulder/chest pain?
I realize about not lifting my left arm above my head or lifting anything over 10 pounds but how long can I expect this soreness to last? I'm already dreading the replacement in 8 years or so! Sleeping seems to be the hardest part of all this.
Thanks for any experiences you've had with this.
