Those of you that have spinal cord simulators implanted, how many different settings do you have and then actually use? I was originally set up with two and asked for a third but was then told that people don't use much more than that. Just curious.
I go for my two week recheck on Thursday. I am going to see the Medtronic rep again, two of the three settings I have are in my stomach to much, but the third is oh so great .
I am improving, rather than the surgical pain that was buggin' me so, now I am back to my normal pain more, which I am very proud to say has been helped tremendously by my scs. I know I'm not supposed to drive yet, but had a bit of an emergency with my lil dog and had to get her to the vet, the drive there wasn't so bad but waiting in the office then the drive home were not so fun.
I am improving each day but not ready for work yet, I can tell you that for sure. I'm also not willing to rush it because I often wonder if I wasn't in such a hurry to get back to work after my original discectomy, I wouldn't be where I am now, that's a message to all of you that haven't yet had a surgery, don't push it.
