What is recovery time for SCS removal

Hi everyone,
My husbands had his Boston Scientifics SCS removal today as he was no longer using it but, it did actually SAVE HIS LIFE.
He had the one with the wires and done as a out-patient (2 hours) and he is a Security Guard due to his limitations after a work injury. I would like to know from anyone that has had it removed and what the recovery period was. He is planning on working 8 hours tomorrow and rest the weekend then work 16 hours on Monday to make up the time. This is what he has worked out with his employer but, I do not want him going back to work til atleast Monday and only 8 hours.
Thank you for reading my post...........Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
