It's been six weeks now since my SCS implant and after my PM follow up yesterday I was sent back to the spine surgeon who said I have an infection at another surgical site. Unfortunately this new one is where the actual stimulator box (don't know the technical name for it) is located so a little more uncomfortable. Apparently my body is rejecting the internal stitches and creates an abscess which leads to infection. They said I haven't done anything to create this--like tight clothing. So I am on antibiotics again which make me feel pretty awful!
Has anyone else had problems with their incision sites becoming infected? I thought after six weeks I would be free and clear of surgical issues :-(. I just wondered how common that was. I just don't want any part of the SCS to become rejected as well!
Thanks for any input!
