Have had spinal cord sugery 2 months ago, the implant, battery, leads etc were from medtronic , I would be glad to talk about the trial, operation (very straight forward) and how I felt then and now, I also have photos of my back after surgery for you to see( to perhaps put your mind at ease).This operation is not a fix but a addition so you can reduced some or all of your medication and also improving your quality of life, everyones different ,Good luck .

    I am currently on day 5 of my trial. I have had 2 surgeries in the past 4 years. I like to think I am not a wimpy person- but I am having a lot of soreness and pain from this trial. They told me I was a "textbook" patient so I don't understand why I am so sore from this. Does that seem normal?
