Can I raise my arm above my head on the side of my ICD implant?

Check with your doctor about any restrictions. Some doctors do recommend limiting use of the arm that is on the same side as the ICD. The surgical site may be sensitive after the implant procedure and need time to heal for a number of days. However, after a while, you should be able to resume activities that you were doing before getting the device. Tennis anyone?
