Hi, I've posted a lot over the past several months about my back issues. In April I had a SCS placed with the battery pack on my right side at level T8-9, to hopefully control my pain enough to avoid a multi level lumbar fusion. A week ago (6wks post-op) I began having electric like shocks in my right hip & groin, I told my surgeon and the rep did some tests with my unit and the shocks were there whether or not the unit was on so he felt that it wasn't the stimulator. I asked if it could mean that my "small" bulges that are from L3-S1 could now be compressing the nerves and he said no cause pain in that area was L1. Well by the end of that week, the pain as gotten emensly worse, amd wakes me at night, to the point where I almost went to the ER for fear of a clot.
I'm now schedluled for an EMG on June 2nd on the right leg. I'm concernd both about the test and possible results. Any help would be great
