Lead extraction advice
my name is Meg, I'm 34 and on my second pm. I've seen three cardiologist in the last few months and it's been determined I need both leads replaced due to noise and my pacemaker battery is wearing down, basically a whole new system.
I was trying to go to UC San Diego for the surgery since it is their specialty area, however my insurance has denied my claim for network adequacy since I like in AZ and have an HMO plan.
im going to be interviewing another EP in Phx soon but so far I feel stuck without great options here. I'm nervous for this surgery give my leads are 15 years old and being 34 this is probably not the only time I will have to have this procedure done in my life and I want it done right. I also have three small kiddos to be worried about.
any one with advice or guidance on lead extraction to dr selection would be greatly appreciated.
