The computer doesn't tell you what the code means. It only supplies a code number. It was the code read that you were using that identified it incorrectly.

That code is for a bad heater in the O/2 sensor on the downstream side of bank 2

The one you need to change is in the right side exhaust pipe after the mini converter and before the main converter.
