I have had my implant for 7 months now. It's safe to say that I'm pretty scarred in. I have the Medtronic RestoreUltra Spinal Cord Stimulator. My coverage starts just below my knees to my toes. I rarely run my stimulator in what some have referred to as jack hammer mode.
I have recently had to turn down my amplitude as its become to strong for me. After all my research, I find this odd. The scar tissue should be causing more impedance, making me have to turn the amplitude up. It's one of those things thats making me go HMMM. Right now the amplitude is in no mans land, either I turn it down one notch to be comfortable (poorer performance) or leave it where it was for optimum performance. It does not feel like the leads have moved because the stimulation is in the same areas as before, just stronger. Another oddity is that my battery life has been put on steroids cause I seriously think I could extend my recharging to every other week and still have some juice left in the tank. Of course, It would probably take 4-5 hours to recharge rather the 2+ that I currently dedicate every Sunday.
