  • I hope you having great success with your trial. Is the pain better? Take it easy and let us know how you are feeling.
  • based on my experience you shouldnt have any trouble. i cant imagine anyone having to spend so much time on the table as i did. my spine is so tight that the dr probed FOR TWO HOURS trying to position the leads. i never felt pain. even when they were scraping bones. in my opinion youve got nothing to fear!!! :-C :-C :-C
  • There's a blessing in the spinal cord having no pain sensors on it... ;)

  • You will be slightly awake. They did not do my anesthesia properly for the first half (which was really bad) then they realized I was too awake and gave me more drugs and I don't even remember the 2nd half. I don't remember the perm either cause they gave me the right amount. I documented my whole experience on my blog.
