Spinal cord stimulation
#15
So far I love my SCS, but not quite 5 weeks with perm yet. Still working on getting the best coverage, and for some reason my neck has been hurting a lot more than usual.

OK, here is what kinda worries me. I only had a 3 day trial and as you with stims know, the provider company decides which one is best for you based on data during your trial. Well, I really didn't know that. I followed the videos and info to a "t". It said to turn off the stim for a couple of hours at a time to see if the pain returns, and then turn it back on to readjust. I even had the trial stim on when I went to bed, but 2 of the 3 nights, it came unplugged. So the data showed that my usuage was 69%. They gave me non-rechargable unit and said based on usuage it would last about 7 1/2 years.

Well, when I went for 2 week follow up with per m stim, the usuage went up to 98% and the rep was very surprised. I think my stim will expire a lot sooner than was expected if I continue to use 24/7. Heck, the instructions said not to even drive with the stim on, and then the rep later told me it was ok to drive with it. LOL!

It does feel like a massage in my hands, but I have to say the feeling is different throughout. Not perfect, but the best thing that has happened for my pain. I'm sold!
Let Go, and Let God......
