SCS turned on

Had my stitches out today and my St. Jude SCS turned on. The rep. only put 3 programs in but so far so good. With the paddles there are many more to come. Hard to tell how good it is because still sore from the operation. Was told not to drive with it on. Is that for ever or until it scars over?


  • it would be forever because of surges or jolts. I keep it close to shut down if I have to....takes too long for me to get out of pain when I get where Im going. You sound great! has it been a month yet?
  • I am going to say something a little different.
    Once it scars in real good driving will be better. The first six months to a year may make a difference. My trial was terrible just to ride in a car my implant was real bad for a few months and slowly got better.
    Time will tell but I would advise to use a lower setting while riding in anything.
    Driving got to be ok.for me but my first plane flight was another story two years later.

    Time will tell
