New user, received first implant in1999. I am being scheduled for fifth revision to implant a new rechargeable unit.
In 2008 I had my current unit installed along with replacement of subcutaneous leads with the paddle leads. I am very happy with the success I have experienced over the years, but lately I am having other issues and wondering if they my be related to 14 years of constant (24/7) use of SCS .
l have had natural disc fusions, surgical disc fusions, spinal cages installed and many other procedures since 1992 after my initial accident. I am 61 years old, have suffered from herniated disc, degenerative disc disease and arthritis. I sure these problems sound very familiar to many of you out there.
Am looking forward to hearing from any and all members of this site.
