Difference between discussion with EP and hospital discharge notes.

I had my first ablation last Monday. EP came to see me before discharge. Basically said no lifting more than a gallon of milk for a week, no strenuous exercise until I can tolerate it. Otherwise, no restrictions. The nurse who discharged me had an entirely different plan. All kind of restrictions. No exercise for a month. No lifting more than 10lbs for two weeks. I’m going to call my EP today to get some clarification. Anyone else experience this?

    I am new to this forum but I am an RN.  The D/C nurse gave you the “canned” information that is available on just about everything.  Talk to your doctor- you will get D/C info specially for you.  Good luck and I will be interested in what the doctor tells you.
