Glad to hear everything went well, it sure can be rough on ya, now the fun starts, sleeping on same side for a month, lol. What I do for recharging is when it gets down to half empty I recharge it, you cant let it get too low, or you run the risk of loosing the internal settings and that would mean you would have to have the doc, or medtronic rep reprogram it, so I make sure it never gets below half. I wasn't told any specific time table on the first recharge, but Im sure 3-4 weeks will be fine, it prolly wont be much below half by then anyway. I don't normally go in to the chat rooms, I have been lucky and found great people here on the boards who can answer my questions.
Again, if you think of anything you need help with just give me a holler, I will put my email on my profile if you would like to get a hold of me that way, heal fast, bye for now. Mark
