I had 2 trials done, one with leads for my leg pain. My leg pain really isn't that bad since a fusion surgery of l3-5 back in '07. The trial didn't seem to work very well, until they removed the trial, then the pain was back, and I realized I still had the leg pain, but had learned to ignore it. The 2nd trial was paddles, one on either side of my lumbar region.
So on Friday they're going to implant both. I've read almost every page of posts, and am curious why paddle implantation is so much worse? Any idea what kind of recovery I'm looking at?
Is there anyone here who had had 2 types/locations of implants at the same time?
