Generator replaced / or can as they call it
Thursday had my pace maker replaced , battery low, 1 month left, had initial pace maker for 9.5 years.
i live in Carmel Ca., however I’ve kept my cardiologist in Scottsdale Az who I totally implanted my device in 2009.
They have cared for me the entire time, every 6 months I’d visit as well as use the home monitor. My insurance carrier, blue cross/ covered California day they will not cover the procedure since I was treated out of state. Has anyone had a similar issue? I’m trying to argue continuity of care.
btw the procedure went great! It was out patient, the clinic of my Dr. In at 7:30, out at 9:30
You know you're wired when...
You always have something close to your heart.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
