A lot of interesting things have gone on this past week. First...I went for reprogramming today. I can tell you positional...in the beginning...is very much a part of healing. I spent 2 hours with rep who took her time to make sure everything was right. We finally figured out what needed to change to get the coverage I needed. I am a little different...guess we all are...but my lead was placed down instead of up. Let me explain mine is not sacral, mine is on the coccyxal nerve root. You can get low back coverage or at least I do...all the way to my toes. Wonderful when everything is working in the right spot.
Second interesting thing...I got a print out from my insurance of the trial and permanent placement. I almost fell out of my chair. The trial was $77,000 and the permanent was $185,000. This didn't include doctor, radiology, or anesthesia. Thank goodness I have insurance.
