It is difficult to determine recovery time because every patient is different. In most cases, you should be allowed to go home shortly after the procedure. Your physician will provide a complete set of instructions for you to follow immediately following your procedure. Always consult your physician for specific information. You will also receive a patient identification card, allowing you to alert medical and security professionals that you have an implanted medical device.
