Life and Activities after pain pump implant . What can you do after recovering from having a pain pump implanted?

Could I get some feedback from members about what activities they have been able to do or rejoin after they have had a pain pump implanted. I was into cycling, mountain biking, trail riding in our Polaris Rzr, snowmobiling, and skiing. I would like to here what people have been able to do or what problems have been encountered with certain activities. I am sure that there are plenty of horror stories. I would like this post to focus on the positive, but also share activities that have definitely caused problems.
