Alright I have to admit I am kind of freaking out a little bit. I am scheduled for the permenant spinal cord stimulator surgery December 4th. The surgeon mentioned that you are awake during it. Is this going to be as bad as I'm thinking it is going to be? Also, what was the best way you have found to sleep? Would i be better off sleeping in a recliner? Or is my bed fine? Sorry, I know these may sound like petty questions, but the closer it gets, the more nervous I am. I honestly can't wait though, I am so tired of being in pain. I really hope this works as good as the trial did. I am 23 and really want to start getting on with my life...
