I had my implant put in May 2017. My battery site
was initially low on my right abdomen causing it to rub on a cluster of
nerves and leaving me with constant pain and swelling. In October 2017, I
decided to have a revision and my battery site was moved up 6 inches
(just above my belt line) on my abdomen.
The surgery seemed a success for about
three months. Then I started with burning pain at my battery site and
constant swelling with ANY activity. I just revisited my doc who has
suggested that because there is constant rubbing of the battery site it
is creating chronic aggravation and inflammation.
My doc has suggested ANOTHER revision to move the battery up slightly and angle it more
towards my rib cage. I am frustrated and a little nervous about another
surgery due to the recovery time and chances of leads and parts being
fractured or damaged during surgery. Has anyone had any similar issues?
