Hi, my first time posting. I have had 3 back surgeries over ten years ago, last five years pain back and been on pain meds. Drs talked me into spinal cord stimulator, not thrilled, helped with pain in my legs and knees but not lower back. Now, 6 months post op from placement, my battery pack in my left lower hip/buttock area, is so tender and sore. It hurts to sit or lay, no swelling or bruising showing, but very painful. Anyone else have this issue?
Also, I feel so out of options, now that I have this thing my drs want to take away meds, they don't want to hear it wasn't a success. They just keep saying give it time, or let's adjust the settings. I'm so over this, it's caused me to now be depressed, in constant pain, see no hope!! Can anyone understand, and offer any advice. Thanks sooooooo much! I just don't know where to turn for help.
Painful life in sw Florida.
