Well everyone the time has nearly come for me to have my 2 SCS trials..Wednesday at 12.30pm I have to be at the hospital and Im nervous and anxious as to what the outcome is going to be..

One SCS is going up the whole length of my spine and the other one is going across my lumbar region.

I will let you know how it goes once Im home...They said its more than likely I will have to stay in hospital until the leads are removed on Sunday.



  • My thoughts and prayers will be with you Shelly.

  • Shelley, hope all goes well for you with the SCS procedures tommorow. Can understand your concerns for the outcome and that ultimately will brings you good relief!

    p.s. Have much to learn with SCS and if it may need to be an option for me...even though not now.

    Heart-thoughts and prayers that you'll be getting full benefits and that tommorow was worth it all - - with most if not all of your pain level gone!

  • it will go well I'm sure and i pray you get the relief you seek and need.

    take care
