Hi, I hope someone will post who had a SCS trial because I have a question.
I had a week-long trial of the medtronic SCS for leg pain. Today they removed the unit. I have not had the unit turned on since 24 hours ago but I still feel like it is on and buzzing in both my legs. I hope this is normal, anyone know?
Anyway, they trial did not work for me. Pain levels were the same even though the SCS coverage seemed to be in the right areas. Saw the PM docs today, they want to try an injection in where I have an annular tear. So now I am waiting for that to be scheduled. My pain level is very high today - it was high just before and during the trial too.
Nobody mentioned better pain relief with meds and I didn't ask but I only have percocet 5/235 max of 3 per day. I never take more than that but I also never get really good pain relief. I could use a little more help in that area. Probably need to just bring it up whenever I next see him.
9.5 years and still waiting.....
