but, not a bad one?!
I have been somewhat frustrated with my coverage the last few months. Not anyone's fault really as it did/does cover the shoulder pain. What it did not do and I did not realize how big a deal this would be when it was implanted was cover my T-spine back pain.
When on narcotics and even during the trial the backache was kind of painful but remote compared to the shoulder. Once the Narcotics were dumped and I switched to Lamictal it readily became apparent that the back pain was a BIG DEAL. Me being the stubborn as a mule and really tired of doctors type I have done nothing. Except being mad at work a few times, overdoing things and hurting myself, pulling at the anchor leads till that hurts too, etc, etc;
So, to get back to that actual topic, I was hurting pretty bad this morning from activities carried out over the last week due to shear frustration with a co-workers lack of planning.
Sitting here this morning I decided this was stupid, so I turned me stim on to see what it would help with. It covers my back pain!, never did that before, never...
So, it seems that I am either doing a placebo effect on myself or somewhere over the last week or month, yeah it's been a while since I turned it on, the lead has moved slightly.
What are the odds that one could move a lead by accident and get BETTER coverage? They have to be astronomical.
yet, I feel a strange sense of peace, maybe it was meant to take a year? Maybe all those lifts of my 100lb buddy into and out of the Jeep? One last present from Chewy. I think I will go with that thought as it is indeed a good one.
EDIT: yes I will mention this to my PM on my upcoming visit.
I guess if I did tug the lead it may need the anchor redone, shudder...think happy thoughts, yeah happy thoughts!
