My NS has recommended a SCS trial. Can anyone explain to me how the process of getting one put in is? Is there a psych evaluation? Will the procedure be done in a hospital or in the pain management doctor's office under the fluoroscope? Are you awake during the placement of the trial stimulator? I am just real curious how the whole process is going to work. Any experiences would be greatly appreciated.
