...oh by the way it is called a Generator...
Is a HIGHLY recommended Dr, he is more than qualified to do this procedure.
BUT (don't you hate it when you hear or say "but")
I am having some real struggles with it being done....yes, I know it has to be done...
I can choose who and where right?
The doctor that first implanted my pacemaker is in Utah, in the same hospital as my Heart Failure Doctors.
The guy who checks my pacemaker remotely..I LOVE...and he is in Idaho.
also the above qualified Dr. is in Idaho.
I hate the thought of loosing "Bill" as my pacer follower.
I am not comfortable with the
Well, this is OUR PROCEDURE attitude..
My Primary care physican calls me a...
YEP a Zebra...
because nothing about my health is "normal"
and any book with "typical" patient can be thrown out the door.
So, when a doctor and his nurse say
THIS IS HOW WE DO THINGS...
especially when it comes to my weird blood that likes to be
at all times with out the help of an anticoagulant
My Heart Failure Doctors have always had to put me in the hospital
prior to a procedure to monitor my blood very carefully.
This Cardiologist want to take me off my anticoagulant 5 days before,
using Lovenox as a bridge prior to the "surgery".
I told him I am not comfortable being off my Cumidian that long...especially with it not being monitored.
AM I WRONG FOR FEELING THIS WAY????
Do I call the doctor who first put in my pacemaker and get his recommendation?
I have already talked to the Heart Failure Team and have their recomendation.
Do I just relax and go with the doctor so I can keep "Bill" as my pacer guru??
