Hi. I got my permanent SCS for sciatic leg pain in April '09. After the first few weeks of healing I loved it. I had very little leg pain when I had the stimulator on. I had a ACDF on level C6-7 of my neck in July which went well. I am still healing some from that but over all it's ok. Starting the end of August I started noticing more sciatic pain poking through and not being covered by the SCS. I met with the rep and had adjustments made that would hopefully help. I can feel the stimuation in all the areas that hurt, but the pain is not being masked. It has gotten to the point that driving more than 5 minutes is very, very painful. I will make another appointment with the pain management doctor in November when I am back home to Maine from my Florida vacation. But wondered if anyone had any suggestions or ideas in the mean time. Sitting at all is awful! I even turn it up to "rivet" power as I say to my husband and it doesn't help. I am so hoping that this is not going to mean that the level below the lumbar fusion that I had about 5 years ago is having problems now. Thanks for your help.
