After how many days of pacemaker implantation, can a person have sex, whether male or female?

Usually once the incision heals patients can start to resume their normal activities. It is very important that you continue to not raise your arm on the implanted side above the shoulder and not bear weight on that arm for the full 6 to 8 weeks after implantation. Activities such as swimming and golf need to be avoided until cleared by cardiology.
