I have just been given the approval for a trial in the coming weeks (this is the SCS that has been approved for me: St Jude Eon mini rechargeable IPG equipment
My husband has a demanding job which keeps him out of the house for 12 or so hours each day, and we live in a different country to our families. We are worried about the extent of practical support I will require during the trial and following the permanent implant surgery, if the trial is successful. We live in London (no car, public transport my most viable travel option), in a four-storey walk-up. I usually do most of the walking to the store, grocery shopping, carrying bags, cooking, household chores etc. I am mindful of not compromising the trial, so anticipate having to cut back on my usual activities... Please can someone give me an idea of what recovery was like for them - what you could do in what kind of time frame? We are very nervous and face some challenges in trying to plan some time off work for my husband. I would be very grateful to hear about your experiences.
