So here I am 7 days post-op back at work and trying to normalize my life. I came back to work on Monday. It has been really hard, especially driving. It is very very hard to drive. I cannot move very much to turn my head or make sharp turns with the steering wheel. Not to mention every time I turn I am in excruciating pain where the battery is because the car makes me lean to the side. I drive with a pillow behind my back to minimize the pain. I feel like the skin is ripping apart where they implanted the battery. How long will it hurt?
If you are looking for more info on spinal cord stimulation or peripheral field stimulation please go to my blog. I have documented my whole experience trial to perm implant and everything in between. What limitations I had, pics of the implant, pics of the stim, what treatments I have had and what worked for me. Basically I documented the entire process because I still had alot of questions before I had mine done. I wanted there to be another honest resource out there for patients, in addition to all the other awesome resources already available.
