Hi All, I was given an external bone stimulator to use for 30 minutes each day. I use it most days, but regret it each time. The 30 minutes of therapy come with a lot of tingling and burning sensations, and the followig 12-18 hours severe pain in both legs/hips, severe enough to make me take meds hours ahead of the scheduled time. I dont like that. It frightens me. Has anyone else had difficulty with the external stimulator?
I see my surgeon for my 2 week followup on Monday and other than that feel like I am doing well, I have had 2 PT sessions that went well, I am walking around the block 2 times a day, except when I use the stimulator then I am down for the rest of the day. I am getting around in the house without my walker. (still use it around the block,security). My pain is usually well controlled with my
Hydrocodine every 6 hours and muscle relaxers evey 8 hrs I do still have difficulty laying in bed, but use my recliner mostly and feel good.
Thanks for your advice/help
