I had a SCS implanted in February. I am a big girl and will be having a gastric bypass next month. I am wondering if they will have to redo the placement of my battery since I will lose weight so drastically. I am worried that it will stick out to far and will cause pain or damage to my skin. I know I am going to have to discuss this with the surgeon. I am just wanting to know what others with experience with SCS think. Thanks.
