they have my 16 paddle implanted between my shoulders about t9 i think , i am just shy of a year since they put in and the pain is getting unbearable when my stim is on they exrayed the other day no news yet, dose any one else still get bothered by theirs? i can sleep on my side or it really cause pain too
thank you


  • I had my surgery 3 months ago or so, and I still have some trouble where the paddles are. When it's turned on I tend to get muscle spasms and cramps in my upper back around where the leads are. The surgeon told me that it should improve once the area settles down from the surgery.

    I hope they figure out what's going on with yours!
