Lead close to my collarbone
I am on my second CRTD. The battery change was done 2 years ago
Experienced pm users all know the reasons why sometimes PMs shift. My second one did, and I will not get into the details as it has somewhat settled and my doctors do not want to do a repositioning surgery due to infection risk. I accepted it, and still trying to cope and not think about it
But my biggest concern is one of the leads. It has moved close to my collarbone, and especially when I am lying down or sleeping it sticks out as though it wants to break out of my skin. My doctors say it is okey. But I am worried that this much extra pressure could damage that lead at some point. I do not want this to happen as I have already 3 leads and have not much room for a replacement and my doctors are not experienced in lead extraction.
Should I be concerned about this extra pressure on this particular lead? Thanks in advance for all your feedbacks
