pacemaker battery replacement surgery

I'm 23. I had my pacemaker implanted when I was 15, during an open heart surgery to perform a valve replacement, so in July it will be 9 years old. I know I will have to have the battery replaced anywhere between two months to 4 months from now. My pacemaker was implanted under my ribcage on my left side. I know the leads are still fine from my doctors okay but I do want to know what to expect and how invasive the battery replacement surgery will be? Could you tell me what best to expect, what most important questions to ask my doctor? I know he will prepare me but I want to know so I can prepare my mom! Thanks,
S.C
