This is a great opportunity to concur: Just a brief history; I am a very active 50 year self-employed male; Over the past 20 years have undergone 3 lumbar fusions, whereon, with the onset of medical discovery at this juncture, I have been prescribed to wear the preset “Biomet Bone Stimulator” as often as possible. Because I am use to chronic discomfort -I do not use pain killers- I am willing to accept the potential of side effects due to bone growth stimulation in order to regain stability to my spine, and have mentally accepted that; nausea and abdominal cramping; jumpy electrical pulsation; great aching; restless nights and daily general discomfort are a part of my recovery this go-round while using the "Biomet" device. When I break from my 30 or so days 24/7 of using the stimulator -I'll take a week off using the device- I notice a significant difference in my legs heavy weighted fatigue and abdominal discomfort. However, bone growth fusing together my troubled area is doing quite well; as my surgeon is confident my other symptoms will better in time with physical conditioning. It is true though; there are days I wish wish wish I didn’t have to tolerate so much during this recovery. My other recoveries, I remember clearly, weren’t as uncomfortable. I do however want to follow my doctor’s advice, and in order to do so I must cooperate and bear what I can through this hopefully short period. Stay strong, nobody will say that spinal surgery is easy. Keep in mind, meeting your medical pros half way is essential and responsible.
