Have vicariously scoured and read so much here since before getting my SCS I feel I know so many of you here. Been reading different postings on the RF. Really feeling down despite my struggle to always smile. Do any of you have any pointers for me concerning being comfortable after procedure? Do they give you something other than your regular pain meds when they send you home? I am so tired of hurting. It's wearing down now which is why I suppose I officially joined. For 3 years I have read so many forums and I just am feeling scared about the pain and recipe time. If you have discussed this ad nauseum please don't feel the need to reply. I'll just search for more.
Anyways, "Howdy Y'all". Hope I did my intro right...lol
