Replacing SCS
(03-17-2016, 09:32 AM)tbear6410 Wrote: Don't know if everyone with a SCS is still reading this thread...

I'll be having my SCS removed May 5th due to constant pain with my nerves.  

I ended up going in for a nerve block on January 26th and Dr. T told me that it sounded like the wires are pressing on the nerves.  He said he did mention it in my report when I had the Temp put in that there wasn't much room in the Spinal Canal for those wires.

I finally went to see the surgeon about all this and my Med Rep was there too.  Rep wanted to up the speed and strength of the Stim but I told him flat out.... if it goes over 5.0, I'm in pain that doubles me over.  Not to mention that the pain I had BEFORE the surgery was all still there... the unit just isn't working.   Surgeon comes in and we talk with him.  He agrees with us that it's just not doing what it should be doing and because of the wires pressing and causing the nerve pain, he also recommends it comes out.

Since both the surgeon and PM doctor's both stated that I wouldn't be able to work anymore, I asked about having the nerves burned after the SCS is removed.  PM dr. said we can do that after I've healed from the surgery.  Since I won't be working, we will know if that procedure works or not.   First one I had done, I was working 40 hours a week with no breaks or light duty, so it never helped.

I hope the nerve burning will help. Please let us know how you are doing.
