Anyone with a recent implant? I am getting ready in about a week to have my trial period. Going Tuesday for my pre-op appointment. I have searched the web and found lots of information about the stimulator and how it works but, I want to know about the surgery it's self...healing time...is it hard adjusting to the battery inside of your body. What it really feels like etc. etc.
I have had two cervical spine fusions C-4,5 and C-6,7
Lumbar fusion L-5,6 after my lumbar fusion I ended up with Neuropathy pain in my left leg. With high dose of Neurontin and Tylenol I can keep the pain under some control...that is if I am not overly active! My pain mgt. doctor thinks he can reduce my pain 80-90%.
I would love to hear from anyone who has gone through this and can give me some realistic response on what to except.
Thanks you so much for your time, lmeston
