Well it has been 3 1/2 wks since I had the SCS removed, leads and all. I am now in more pain than I started with. I have such intense pain under the area where the battery pack was implanted & explanted. Not sure if there is an issue with scar tissue or what. I now have an appt with a new PM at a new facility since I was so unhappy with my treatment from the orig Dr's. Any advise? any one out there have anything similar? I am just so miserable that I would love any advise.
