Went to Drs office to install SCS trail. Unfortunately, after multiple tries, Dr was not able to install one of the probes because of some kind of obstruction at that level. Dr said it is not unheard of but this is the first time it has happened to him. I now have an appointment with a specialist at Northwestern Hospital in three weeks who does the trial with the surgically installed final patch. If it works, they then hook up and install the unit, if not they go back in and remove patch. This happen to anyone else? Also, they were suppose to put me in a twilight state of sedation, but whatever they were giving me had no effect. Afterwards Dr told me he gave me 3x times the dose of someone my size from just couple of hours before my procedure. The Boston Scientific rep will be any my appointment with the specialist.
