I am having a permanent implant put in the coming weeks. I was given the option of the rechargeable or nonrechargeable unit. I can see pro and cons of both. Hoping to get some advice from others that have SCS's. They did tell me that the medtronics rep is going to try and sell me on the rechargeable unit.
