I am in the waiting stage for my SCS I had my Psy appt last week now I'm waiting on Pre-auths etc... I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the SCS through all kinds of ways(internet,docs,informational DVD's yadayadayada). In doing some research on the type of device I'll be getting someone mentioned a waiting period after the trial before the final is implanted. Is this true? In all my reading and watching I didn't get that impression. I thought you did the trial and if it worked you would go right in for the final. A guy said he was waiting in pain while the site healed before he could get is final. I am curious because it is summer and I need to plan where I can. Please post your experience. Thanks!
