Had my second SCS implanted on Thursday the new Nevro system. Thankfully my neurosurgeon just had to change my battery. To make a long story as short as possible I had gastric bypass surgery and lost over 200 pounds which made my old battery stick out. The new battery was placed under the scar tissue from the first battery. This was back surgery number six including 2 fusions.
The last two days the pain is increasing and it is extremely swollen and sore. I don't seem to have a fever and I am on strong antibiotics. I of course will contact the doctor first thing Monday, but want to avoid the ER if I can. Any advice? Anyone have similar issues?
