I am going to a neurosurgeon in Orlando tomorrow for a surgery date to place the 16 paddle lead for head, cervical and shoulder chronic pain.
The trial placing was pure torger! I had too many bone spurs in the T area for placement going to the cervical area. What should have taken 1 hr for 2 leads....took 2 hrs for 1 lead and it was not able to be placed correctly.
So, I have to have the paddle lead with 16 electrodes implanted surgerically.
Has anyone had a similar problem? And, please tell me had the perm was done surgically. I can't fine a video showing the surgical procedure. Only the traditional lite sudate way.
Can anyone tell me how their surgery went and what happened, how long, if you stayed in hospital, how often ck ups.?????? How it is working for you.
I have not been able to sit for 9 months. Alomst constantly laying. Had chronic pain for 18 yrs.
