pacemaker and defib problems.

PM/defib installed march 2021.  have had several setbacks due to lead dislogements.  I had surgery to intall a left ventrical lead thru the rib cage.  then my implant area got infected.  I am on antibiotics.  I also have a high voltage on the LF lead that is draining the device life.  I curently have 7 leads installed and the doctors are considering removing the implant and moving from the left chest to the right.  I am worried that the procedure is very risky.
