I am new to this site and it is wonderful to find a group of people with SCS experience. I have had mine for 10 months. In the last month I have had tenderness around my battery which is in my right buttock. I can't wear some jeans that I could wear before because the pressure of the waistband hurts, it awoke me during the night this week, etc. I don't think I have infection (no other symptoms) and it feels like an irritated muscle. I have lost about 15 pounds since it was implanted - don't know if that would have impacted it any. Have any of you experienced anything like this? (have left message at neurosurgeon's office).
