2008 I had the perm. ANS SCS implant for my lower body (Which I LOVE). My current SCS only comes up to the buttock area, my RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Syndrome) has since traveled into my entire back. I spoke with my Neuro Dr. (Who implanted the last one) and has said that I of course need to go through the same steps as before, which I dont mind. I am waiting on the Drs office to call for my psy.eval date, until then I have a few questions I know I will talk to my Dr. and ANS rep about but thought it woulnt hurt to ask here also.
Has anyone had either the upper or lower SCS and months or years later needed to add the other one??
If you have another one did they add leads or add another battery??
I have paddle leads so I'm not sure if they will add to it and I wont need another battery or I will have another battery and more paddle leads!!!
Thank You in Advance
