Drive line

My husband will have VAD surgery March 25. He is right handed. Any right handed folks with VADs find it difficult to have the line on the right? Left? Or it doesn't matter?

Driveline goes to the right which means your controller will be closer to right hand

I use Underarmour (go to underarmour website)football shorts with pockets intended for thigh & hip pads instead i place batteries in thigh pockets and controller in right hip - pleated shorts or dockers make the equipment nealry invisible and allow plenty of comfort for playing golf - surgery & recovery are a challenge but 3 to 6 months into it life gets real normal

trust your lvad team and beleive
