after a fall location of spinal stimulator location notes..??

after my fall in feb.2015 I had an x-ray to determine any injuries.... my report tells me Spinal Stimulator is noting extending into the Thoracic spinal canal. Can anyone tell me what that means? After my fall, my battery pack is gouging me and is painful and I've had terrible spasms in my back where the leads are located. Can someone explain what the x-Ray report means ?


  • Hi
    Not sure if it helps but when I had my SCS in 2008, the wire kept moving up my spine so the "tingling" was in the wrong place. They pulled in back down twice with a quick revision surgery but it kept creeping back up until in sat inmy brachial nerve which spasmed to the point of not being able to move my shoulder. After this they went back in put a small titanium plate at the entry point and anchored the wires and had no issues from then on.

    Re the box jabbing you - i also had this problem! I don't have much luck with surgery! I had in inmy stomach and it was implanted when i was very skinny (pain meds made me vomit a lot). As i put on weight, it forcedthe box forward andevery time i sat diwn it jabbed me in the rib. I had revision surgey on that too and it was moved lower down.

    Bothvery annoying problems but both easily solved - in and out surgery in lessthan an hour
