Lifting heavy stuff when you have the VNS?

Hi guys,

Does anybody know if it's "ever" ok to lift something kinda heavy (3yr old toddler, box of books, groceries/laundry, etc.) even a few yrs. after having the VNS put in???

Sometimes I can feel mine or it bothers me to lift things kinda heavy. But mine is up on the surface & not under like I think it should be 'cause it pokes at my scar sometimes.

Just wondering, what's yours like?
