    I was one who was off 6 weeks in order to let the scar tissue to start to develop. Most people can be off just a week or two but I had to be off 6 because my job involves lifting and bending repeatedly and my Dr. and I wanted to make sure that things stayed put! It wasn't a pain thing at all. I just took medical leave. FMLA... If you are in the U.S. your work has to give it to you. You just have to have it preapproved.

    Thanks for Information RE Permanent Interstim Recovery Time

    Thank you so much. I truly am excited about the possibilities even as I realize that not everyone has success with this procedure. I appreciate the information.

    I also went back a week after the permanent implant was put in... basically, my doctor scheduled a post-op visit for one week after the implant surgery, and so I stayed home until that appointment. At the appointment he pulled out my stitches and told me I was good to go, so I went back to work the next day

    Hi, I went back to work a week after my permanent interstim was implanted. I had no complications, knock on wood.

    Recovery Time Interstim Permanent

    I am scheduled to have my permanent Interstim implant next week: my trial was extremely successful. I have been very relaxed about the two-week recovery time I have given myself but I've just read a post that made me a little concerned -- one patient indicated a 6-week recovery time. Of course I will ask my physician, but can others who have had successful experiences let me know how long they were away from work? I do not have a high-activity level job (physically). Thanks so much.
Working...
