This is bit off topic but so imperative to me. I very recently had
another issue from a small blood clot in my left calf (the leg that has the
utmost inferior problems from the hematoma).It was discovered at
the 4 week time frame and should have been found sooner from my daily talk of
my left foot puffiness not reducing. I was given an option of an IVC filter
immediately or bed rest with monitoring the small clot for growth and would
require the filter if the latter transpired. The vascular DR placed a tight
compression wrap normally used for a clot concern. But I and the
nurse/assistants were never elucidated about the wrap requiring constant
monitoring for removal to restore circulation. After 14 hours I told the floor
DR during rounds my left leg feelings had disappeared. It’s now 24 hours later
and I have zero feeling in my left foot. This negligence will make any
improvement I have achieved in my walker progress obsolete. Sorry for this
paragraph so off topic to the SCS trial info I am seeking, but it’s relieving
to get this out of my system since the DR’s here are reluctant to discuss it. I
am at one of the best rated rehab facilities in the USA so this should never
Back on topic now - Has anyone heard of a paralysis incidence from
a stimulator trial due to some form of negligence of the wire lead
placement during the trial procedure alone? My wife and I have searched the web
and cannot find a like problem. Would like to know of others is possible.
Any info greatly appreciated!
