Hello all, again. Today is the day for my permanent implant. Figured I would start a new thread for any new members that come along and peruse the board looking for recovery stories. Real short background info--I'm Active Duty U.S. Navy and am getting a Boston Scientific Precision Plus SCS implant for persistant neuropathic pain stemming from an inguinal hernia two and a half years ago. I've had two surgeries to try to alleviate the pain, but neither were overly successful and am not a candidate for any further surgery.
OK, so in about an hour, I'm off to the hospital. I was told this will be an inpatient surgery, but depending on any complications or my pain level, I may stay overnight. Hopefully, that is not the case, but I've read multiple experiences where the patient stayed overnight, especially w/ a laminectomy, which I will be having. I've never had back surgery before, so don't really know what to expect on the pain level.
Well, wish me luck and I'll post when able, either later tonight or tomorrow, depending. Take care, all!
