Cervical and Lumbar SCS

I did a lumbar SCS in May of 2014; which has been great. However, my neck got worse and a CT revealed problems - the 2013 fusion did not fully heal and I have significant arthritis at many levels. So now, I am doing a bilateral C4-C7 rhizotomy. His final solution is to add leads to my SCS so that it can manage cervical and lumbar. My Boston Scientific Spectra SC1132 is designed to handle it, but I assume the battery will need to charging twice as often; which may be cumbersome.

Anyone have a similar SCS configuration? Can you please tell me your experience?
L4-L5 fused at birth (congenital malformity). L-5-S1 bulge/degeneration, L3-L4 bulge/degeneration. Permanent nerve damage L5-S1 and L3-L4. Fused C5-C7.
