Trial leads just put in yesterday

And it liked to have killed me. What was supposed to take 20 minutes took over an hour. They said is was because is scar tissue from previous surgeries. Why my doctor is going with Boston Scientific instead of Medtronics may have to did with my Aetna insurance, unsure. Did other people have problem with the terrible pain involved in the with placement of leads. It feels as if they did 1 hour of of CPR on my back or they took a sledge hammer and hit me in the back many times. Jeez so glad that's over.

Has anyone had any luck with the the device to do the same with Nrevo HF10 technology without all the tingling?



  • The trial worked very well. My surgeon is working on getting a permanant system approved through the insurance company.
    He hopes to have it installed by the end of November.

    Thanks Savage, the permanent one is installed but not online, Doctor supposed to take care of that this week.

    Had to stay overnight because I bleed very easily and Doctor wanted me monitored and minimize my movement.
