Blood work before trial

I have to go for blood work before I begin the trial. I know they'd need it before Id get the permanent unit, but why for a trial?

    You can probably look up more specific info to your question, and I myself have not had SCS, ..but I would think the trial would be as a " dress rehearsal" ...doing all they can for trial, so no surprises if you decide to have it permanently.

    I wish you the best in reducing your pain!
