I am so nervous and excited at the same time. One week from tomorrow will be 2 months from my perm Boston Scientific for my bilateral leg pain. That day I see the doc and spend time with my two reps. I have two programs now that need a bit of tweaking since the leads must have moved a bit and I get my other two programs. YES!!! The rep had also said something about when I get settled with the scs I would have the ability to do some tweaking myself. YES!!!
The reps laugh at my terms for the stimulation-I call sleeping "cat purr", "pulse" for normal days, and "jackhammer" for bad times. I have specific plans on what I want my other two programs to cover. The 3 reps I have met are just amazing and patient. I think one must be in training because he's always with another one, but I could see him alone because he's awesome.
Little anxious because last time I cried through half the appointment as it was shortly after my dad's death. I told them and they were very understanding, but I just hope they didn't write me off as a nutcase. This device has really given me hope now that all salvage operations have been done. I have something to help the nerve pain and I am in control of it. I haven't had control for a long, long, time and I am a control freak.
After talking with my rep about the charger shutting itself off after it reaches 106 degrees(so don't lay on pillows, you need ventilation) and a lot of personal PM's from C, I really feel like I've got this charging thing down. Oh man, this has been such a long journey physically and mentally but I finally feel like even though I am still in some degree of pain, I am on the right path.
Thank you to everyone for support and so many of you sharing your experiences. You may never have said anything to me, but reading your stories helped! C-thank you. I don't know what else to say but that. Just taking a personal interest in me really helped.
