Hey all
Had medtronic scs system fitted after 3 failed microdiscetomy - Diagnosed finally with fbss hence scs
Had scs fitted July 2014-6 week s post op felt like a new man- wife probably wishes I was !! Then had minor slip off
A step which resulted in neuro modulator moving - made a hole in the subcutaneous pocket which has left my battery pack
Migrating towards my spine - recharging belt bridging my spine
I have looked long and hard on web for any similar cases but to no avail
My life before 6" slip was 70% improved now back down in the why did I bother stage !
