Post op

Just needing answers to questions from those who have gone through this spinal stimulator surgery. Mine was done 1/16. Still haven't been able to get it fully programmed to hit the lower back and butt. Got the legs and yes it helps. Not anything near what the trail did though. Also complete shock as to how indebted the surgery was it's self. Got the 4 inch cut between shoulder blades and the implant in lower. The lower is nothing in pain compared to the upper. I have had discs removed and cages and rods and screws in L,4&5 3 yrs ago. Had sever sciatic pain to bet replaced with all over nerve pain across lower back and down both legs. Anyway does anyone have that rib cage pain. It on the same side as the upper cut. I had 16 probes put in the same area as trial. x gymnastic coach and been know. To handle pain great. If you ever had selective nerve root blocks I did mine no drugs. Cold turkey. Radio frequency bare minimill. As the year progressed muscle spasm stopped them from letting me go without being knocked out for procedure. Anyway I don't get that rib cage pain. It's not the muscle anymore locking up it's just flat out sharp constant pain. Haven't decided yet if it when I have the stimulator on the starts it or not. Sometimes I feel like it right under the breast left side too. I keep my stimulator on all the time. Is that good. How do some of you use yours?? It's just so completely different from how I used it in the trial.
