I am preparing for an SCS trial in a few days -- packing luggage, actually, as we are going 180 miles by train to get to the hospital for the trial.
The nurse said to wear loose-fitting clothing such as sweat pants. OK, but what size? :? I don't know of a reason that my girth should increase as a result of percutaneous lead implantation for a trial. Can someone enlighten me on that? I suppose that implanting the IPG permanently in a subcutaneous pocket could cause some swelling, but for the trial I would not expect a change in waist size. Am I wrong?
