I have chronic neck pain due to nonsurgical bulging discs - C6 & C7. I'm on my second SCS in 3 years. My developed a cyst on my incision that had to be removed. Once they removed it the skin was so thin, they wires kept popping out. So after trying to reinsert them under the skin -twice, they removed wires completely. After 3 months, they replaced them, but due to scar tissue where my real pain is- they went around the outsides of my neck. Now the sides of my head buzz just above my ears and drives me crazy! I've done the reprogramming, but they can't seem to stop the buzzing. I have a connector in my mid back, because they thought the constant pulling may have been what caused my cyst in the first place. Immediately after the replacement, my leads slipped so I wasn't getting any coverage and they had to go back in. So long story, still long, I had 5 surgeries in 4 months last fall. The pain coverage is about 60% as good as it was originally. Don't get me wrong, being off hydromorphine & oxycontin is fantastic! But I know it can be better. Second issue, since January, I have lost 38 pounds, which is awesome, but now everything protrudes out of my body. Especially my connector, which is next to my spine in the middle of my back, so when I sit in a chair, it rocks to one side or the other. (annoying). I'm wondering if I go back to my pain dr. and request that he remove the scar tissue, so that my leads can go back to their orginal location, and bury everything deeper. Is that an unreasonable request? Also, a lot of my pain radiates into my shoulder muscles. Anyone heard of adding leads to cover muscular pain? Can I have both? Sorry if this post seems disjointed. It is my first ever! Thanks to all who respond.
