Spinal cord stimulation
#17
hi guys, i actually go in about once every two months and meet with the manager of my scs. (at my doctors office) i have him change programs, intensidy etc. yes, he can see how much i use it and the intensity that i use it at. however, when the machine is not working correctly they really cannot gauge it. i did have my first trial for a week. i think it was worse than the actuall surgery. i do have a recharable one and yes i do have to charge it quite often as i do use it 24/7. i on the other hand am not able to turn it off for a couple hrs--i rely on it and have discontinued some pain meds due to it. when i even shut it off to recharge i struggle with the pain. my particular machine would last a normal person around 7 years---i dont think i will make it that long--heck i already broke a lead.
chrischirs it sounds like you might have an upper scs--if so i would be really interested to know where the implant is as we are trying to decide if i want it in the neck or arm pit. i have yet to find someone with an upper or someone who has two of the implants. i would really like to know where each person is more comfortable with it at. i am fine with where the lower back is and gosh i love the machine. i am having surgery next friday to fix the broken lead--hate surgery and hate the fact that you have to be awake for part of it but in the end i wouldnt give this up for anything. let me know if you do have an upper one
i think it is great to have everyone tell him our stories as to the scs i wish i had been to this site and got all this info before mine not that it would of changed my mind but just the more info the better. guess thats why we all come here!!

nite to all

cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
