I was hoping to get feedback from anyone who has had to get revisions done.....
I have dual percutaneous leads in my lumbar and I just found out (via Xray) that one of my leads has migrated clear down to where the IPG pocket is! :S
I'm concerned because of the fact that I'm pretty sure this lead has been this way for over 6 months .... yes call me stupid, one would certainly think a person would be aware of this....
The one and only program that I've been using works great. The other 2 programs evidentally were shared off of this lead that has migrated, but I was NOT aware that the lead has completely migrated out. I would get a very uncomfortable feeling (stinging/stabbing) when trying to use these other 2 programs....so I quit trying to use them and settled on the one program that works just fine.
If anybody has anything to share regarding getting revision, I'd really appreciate it.
It bums me out that I have to start all over again with the post op restrictions, but more than that, I'm fearing that the migrated lead may have scarred in to where it is, since it's been so long before I realized the predicament I'm in.
I don't know if the Dr is going to cut open the old incision, and/or if he will have to cut a bigger incision to straighten this out. It's really difficult to communicate with his office staff...
So, I was hoping to hear from my fellow SCSer's.
