Greetings to All,
It's so nice to read about all the positive experiences with SCS. I'm scheduled for my SCS trial implant on Friday, Nov. 7. Counting the days...Although it does sound like a lengthy wait period to get the insurance approval for the permanent implant. Good thing that most of that have lived with chronic pain have learned to be patient and persistent in our quest for relief. I do have a couple of questions about the SCS:
During the trial period, can you take normal baths/showers?
I read in a previous post that someone couldn't wait to wash their hair.
I get swedish massages on a regular basis. Will I have to give those up when I get the permanent implant?
Sorry for the lengthy post. Can't wait to read more about everyone's experience.
