~X( Well as most of you know I trialed 2 SCS machines around 4 weeks ago, with the throcic being a nightmare and the lumbar being ok.
Well tommorrow (Sunday here is Australia) Im having the thoracic trial redone with the wires being postioned a different way.
I pray that it works this time and could you all PRETTY PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for me.
I will post when I get out of hospital either Monday or Wedneday depending on if they make me stay in hospital for the whole trial.
Take care all my dear "Spiney" friends as its your battles that make me keep going with mine.



  • I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and hoping for a better trial this time around. :)

    I've got my cervical trial on Monday, and as soon as that's done I'll be having a lumbar trial. All leads will go to one generator (yay!) and we're hoping that I can get some thoracic coverage too when he's positioning the leads.

    I'm really hopeful about this therapy, since I still have so much pain but I'm not a candidate for any more surgeries.

    Take care!
  • Oh Shelly I will SO keep my fingers and toes crossed...:)...I pray you get some relief!! =D>

    And yes Please let us know how it goes!!!
