WISH ME LUCK! (update from a previous post)
On March 1st, I’m having a ventricle lead revision and pacer replacement. The decision has been made that I would receive the same pacer – Medtronic Adapta. My lead will be removed due to an issue and replaced from the RV apical area to the LBB area due to HF, (EF 40%), ventricle desynchrony, wide QRS @ 202ms. The DRs are optimistic that my cardiomyopathy will be reversed. I’m most nervous about the lead revision. The NP told me that the EP has done hundreds, if not thousands of revisions. I’m also nervous about being pacer dependent and how they will deal with that during the swap. Hopefully they knock me out!
Also, during the work-up for this, they found that I have a thickened prosthetic valve leaflet which is causing a leak. It was previously thought to be a paravalvular leak. I'm seeing the cardiologist on March 22 to discuss.
