Found my Tens unit today - monster - 03-26-2008

Only problem is it needs about 5 more sets of leads to "electrocute" all the ouchies at once, LMAO!!!

AQA - thanks for reminding me about it (one of your posts reminded me that I do actually have one). I had put it away and couldn't remember where but I stumbled on it today.

Does anyone know where to get more of those sticky patches cheap. I told roomie I would try it on him, he thought it was a taser thingie, ROTFLMAO...he muct think I'm really mean if he thought I was going to whomp him with a taser, LMAO.

Will the electrode thingies that they hook you up to a heart monitor work with a tens unit????

LMAO...I could have electrocuted myself in the last 8 hours and no one would have cared, LOL Smile I bet if I would have said that a tens unit would make Jayne's alien's boobies grow she would have found this in a heart beat, LOL...

monster-
I have a tens unit and order the patches on-line. tell me what brand unit and what size patches you need and i'll dig up where i get the patches from.

Hi DH's better 1/2,

All it says is that it's a GF-3. Not sure what size the patch thingies are. I have some square and some round. Square looks like about 1 1/2 x 1 1/2???

Thanks for looking, didn't know how to go about it Smile

Have been up all night, going to bed now cause I electrocuted myself earlier nd it hutrt, LMAo (j/k)

ok- that's a start! would bigger patches be better, you think? because they come in all sizes and can be round, square or octagonal (sp?). and the patches i get are self stick to you. they are also re-usable if you put them back on the plastic sheet for storage.

this is the instruction manual, in case you don't have it.


RE: Found my Tens unit today - monster - 03-27-2008

That's the one, you are good Smile If I get larger sticky things does that decrease the stimulation or will it stay the same. In this case a little bigger is better me thinks. Thanks for checking this out for me, not sure why I didn't think of it Smile

Hi Monster, Go to a physical therapy center and ask if they have any sample tens pads that vendors have left. Depending on how nice the PT is, you might get several different sizes to try out. Sometimes PT centers sell the pads to clients.

When my Tens unit was ordered for me, I was set up on an automatic replacement schedule so every two months I get a supply in the mail. Not all I/Cs are that generous.

I love my Tens unit. Hope you find some relief from yours!

monster-
i wll be working tonight, 7p-7a, so i will look where i got mine and send you the websites and $$ per patch/per size then. I just don't function that well in daylight, as it were! Too used to night shift.
