I have lost about 25 pounds since my SCS was implanted in February. I am also having a gastric bypass in 13 days. My battery is already sticking out rather far and I can feel the whole outline of it, even where the leads go into it. Does anyone know if they will have to move my battery after i lose a significant amount of weight? I am going to call my surgeon after my gastric bypass. I just want some opinions or experiences. Thanks
