Please help, I had my Permanent nerve stimulator placed just 3 days ago on 10/25/11. Seems since surgery I have had stinging close to battery placement site, but not right on top of it. I have only been able to turn on stim 2 times a day. Today has been the worse, I only had stim on once today then area on butt by battery area got sore...stinging. Now 5 hours later I am still having the stinging and it won't go away! Its really bad and an hour ago I had 3 really BAD pain/stinging there. tried to move but just makes it worse. Seems so tender, even to touch the area, but like I said its not right at where the insision is, it beside it and in a large area.
I just don't know what to do, as it hurts sooo bad,, and as I"m writing this its just getting worse again. Has anyone ever had this experience? It seems it can't be normal to me but idk! It totally feels like my skin is really raw and I have 100 bees stinging me.
Any help or anything experience would be appreciate! I'm home alone with 2 of my boys, ages 8 and 11. Husband is working and 2 older boys are staying with friends! Its so bad I would go to the hospital but don't know what they can do and I had my surgery 2 hours away from my home so going local I'm afraid they won't be able to help. Tried calling my surgeon but got answering machine and they don't have .NO ANSWERING SERVICE!
Thanks everyone or anyone who have some insight on this!
