Hi everyone, I am scheduled to have a trial implant for an SCS in 2 weeks. I have heard both good and bad stories about all brands of SCS's. I have been reading some posts and it seems a lot of you have spent the night in the hospital after your permanent implant. It is my understanding that for my permanent implant (should I get that far) will be done on an outpatient basis. Maybe the differece is the way my particular doctor does the implant I dont know - but is there more I should be aware of? My device is going to be for chronic nerve pain in my hand/forearm due to a crush injury 27 months ago. Is there anyone out there who has this device for a situation similar to mine???? Any and all comments will be appreciated.
