I just spoke to my pain management Dr's office after getting the last piece of information they needed for my SCS preauthorization. They are tentatively setting the trial date for Thursday, October 8 to make sure they have enough time to hear back from my insurance. I am anxious for the trial to see if it really helps me.
My only concern is my daughter's 5th birthday party with about 15 kids is on Saturday, October 10. It is at a gym where they entertain the kids and do everything for you, except we have to bring the cake. For those of you who have had a trial, would you have been up to hosting a birthday party two days later? My mom and stepfather will be there as well so they can help with carrying the presents to the car, etc. On the one hand, I figure if the SCS helps me that I could feel pretty good during the party. On the other hand, I don't know if I will have any pain from the procedure.
Thanks for any advice you can provide regarding the procedure date, or anything else.
