Well its in and i am back home they kept me over night.Thye did a lamenectomy to plcae in my spine just along the bra strap line , put the battery pack in my left buttocks.
The numbing shots were the worst. the Nero Dr. said to put her under deep , but the anisteolist would not because i was a tiney weeny bit wezzy from asthma,kept telling him it was normal..any way at about the last half hour they changed anistologist and he put me down enogh to sleep.so was awake the whole time except for the close.incisions are aprox 4 inches both areas. I have been on 10/325 norco for the past 1 and 1/2 yrs up to 4 in a twenty four hour period , when they gave it to me after in recovery didnt touch the pian finally in the middle of the night about 3 am they swirched to oxcodone 10 mil barley touched itnever slept all night, sent me home with oxcodone 10 every 4 hours and valuim for muscle relaxer, every 8 hours. finally 3 dr day feeling more stable sill sore . but bearable..they turned the stim on asap in recovery so now i am on my way to my new life!!!i had the worst experence with a nurse and a nurse tec that i am repoting them they had me in tears.Glad it is over .. i the implant was much less painful than the trial implant as he went above the scar tissue, hiher in the spine .. have coverage in both legs and my back!!
