SCS Implant...............
............was done at 6 a.m. this morning. Glad it is over and I am doing well. Vicadin is kicking butt, literally. Unit implanted in right buttock. That is the only area that REALLY hurts and I expect it to for a few days. Soft cervical collar for a few weeks. Had 16 staples between two incisions, and I was awake under light anesthesia throughout the entire procedure. Not exactly fun, but I am a good patient. LOL! I liked not being heavily sedated at I was able to walk out of there about an hour post op.

Sleepy now, so I'll check back soon. Thanks for the support! Tongue
Let Go, and Let God......
You should sleep well tonight.

PS. don't let your husban know how to control the remote. He may want to get even with you for something......?????? LOL

After you play with the remote. You will understand. LOL
