Medtronic stimulator

Last week had installed surgically a Medtronic stimulator and not being fully informed I selected the rechargeable battery rather than the permanent one. BIG MISTAKE!
A person needs to be a tech nerd to follow the instructions in their booklet/tome. It is convoluted and jumps from one connection to another. No CLEAR instructions, at least not those that are understood when an error shows up on either of two screens. They can take this darn thing and throw it in the garbage if this is what I have to deal with for the rest of my life. I will instead opt for the the high risk spinal surgery rather than face the constant frustration and unavailable aid I obviously need to deal with the pain.
They promised me 24/7 support and this being the week-end I am out in the cold. NO SUPPORT and device is not working. I am ready to tell them the remove the damn thing.
