I saw the surgeon for my early 8 wk. check up and the scs ipg. The new ANS rep was there also. As for the XLIF surgery, Everything is healing good and I saw the white cloud. (fusion is started) And from there the rest just got better. He lifted my 5 lb. restriction to 20 lb. And the scs ipg had come loose from the anchors in the pocket and was tilted up and inflamed. So they have put in for insurance to do the surgery and while they are at it put a smaller, better battery in. That's supposed to last 10 yrs. I told the new ANS rep that they never could get the paresthesia where I needed it. So she said she would try to program it. She soon found out that some very complicated mistakes were made. The other rep was trying to program it for leads that I didn't have. And the leads were connected on the opposite posts, that they should have been. So she successfully got 3 programs that would work for me now. And will reprogram it again after the surgery and when all of the nerves settle down from the fusion surgery. And to think that I had almost given up and had them just take it out. I'm so glad I decided to call her! Oh, and the surgeon lifted my driving restrictions for now.
All in all a verry good day for me!
ps. I may have a pair of ruby red pumps for sale!
