SCS Test

Just had had a Medtronic unit put on 7-24-13 for lower back and leg pain. Programed unit to cover pain areas Rep. has 3 yrs programing. With in 3 hrs unit quite working on my back and still workrf on my legs and feet. Rep was to call on the 25th at 2pm to see how i was doing, i had to call them at 3pm with no call back from them. Told Rep what was going on i expected them to meet me to try to reprogram unit. All i was told was well the leads moved, i figured that out my self but with out trying to reprogram unit how am i to get any feel for how the unit is helping my real target pain area. What feedback can you give me, what have others experienced, Legs feel good but little help in back!


  • I had the paddle implanted in April of this year. I have reduced my meds, ditched the walker and am receiving over 60% relief. I would suggest the trial to anyone who is a candidate. Your leads moved in the trial? Will they do it over? I cannot tell you if it will work for you or not but I do know you should be able to tell by the trial. I would ask for a new trial.

    They won't do it over but i want them to try and reprogram before they remove it and Xray just to see if it did moved or not. Has anyone heard about the new medtronic.coming out in the next week or two which is suppose to auto set to body movement after it is programed That is what my rep. told me and you can even have a MRI of any part of your body even the back?
