Nurse, I totally understand the I Want it Out thing. I hope the dr will consider doing a CT before surgery to locate the clips. My thoughts depending on how much scar tissue there is without any type of complications you are looking at a good 6 weeks, perhaps longer before you start feeling decent. Removing the battery pack is not much of a big deal, its the leads. It is difficult to predict since everyone heals differently.
Please come back & let us know how your surgery turns out. As I said before, most of the old threads were people having issues with their units or upset because their dr would not remove the leads.
