  • :-C glad to hear its IN!!!, did they put you out, wehn they cut you? I asked the NS if I would be out, and he said dont worry youll be good and numbed up, but if it get to bad just say hay DR, and we can give you something and you wont remember a thing. Im curious why your not turned on yet,I would think it would be one b4 you left incase something wasnt rigt. Maybe mine wont be turned on immedatly either :? I've not been following your post, are you lumbar? I will be lumbar and also a new one PNS, the lead placed directly over the damaged L4/5 area, and it will only cover an area about the size of a baseball, Mine was supose to be on the 16th but they knocked me off, cause they didnt have approval for the perm one, so now its the 23, and I cant wait <:P , have a great day I cant wait to hear abuot your buzz :H Rose

  • I was OUT completely. The neuro said that is the only way he does it because of how much muscle he has to cut. He didn't turn it on and won't until a week after the surgery he wants to give the body a chance to heal they just started doing this and said they have better results. I did get it in my lumbar area and it will cover both legs and hips. I have been waiting for this for a long time and I hope it is as good as the trial. :D
