Day 2 Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial

Today is the second day with my spinal cord stimulator trial. I have such good results so far that my doctor is going to take it out tomorrow. I have low back pain and pain in my left SI joint that runs down my left leg. I also have Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome in my right foot after seven surgeries.

My goal is to ride my horses again and it looks like I may reach it! The pain running down my left leg is 90% gone. My low back is 60%, but the foot isn't much different. That's alright because I actually went shopping and sat through a movie for the first time in a year. I don't get out of bed much because of the pain.
