I had a Medtronic RestoreUltra SCS implanted for RSD chronic pain. Six months following the initial surgery I had to have another surgery to implant another lead and check the battery because the original lead along my spine was either kinked or faulty to begin with. Needless to say, the canal with my spinal fluid was punctured during the surgery which left me on my back for 6 weeks with unbearable migraines.
The problem is that I originally had to charge the battery every 16 or 17 days, but after the second surgery, the charge has only been holding for 4 1/2 days. Medtronic has flat out refused to help me out to diagnose the problem and I am not keen on having to go through another surgery to have it removed, sent for service and then implanted again. It's not as easy and painless as Dell's Service Depot, although Medtronic wants to think it as such. Has anyone else had any problems with their RestoreUltra holding a charge or with similar problems from Medtronic?
