so hope not to bad..


  • wish you good luck. you got relief so i hope its a go and no lesions in thoracic....pete
  • Please keep us posted on your progress. Don't sweat the MRI, just go take a nap and it will be over before you know it. If you need to, let your doc know you are anxious about, most the time they will give you something to relax during the MRI.

    Laminectomy is more painful than the percutaneous lead implantation, but not so much that it's a show stopper. A few days of down time and you'll be feeling better and stronger.

    Thanks for the update.
