I had my spinal cord stimulator installed six weeks ago. I had it placed due to scarring after a discectomy at L5-S1 a year ago. It was a Medtronics system with their new MRI compatible paddle lead. The surgeon cut some bone in my thoracic area to get the lead in place. It was placed in the T7-T8 area, which is good because I have been plagued with herniations from T2-T7. It was a little rough in the beginning with the recovery but things have been going great and it is helping immensely with my lower back and leg pain. I am hoping this continues.
My question is, at what point did you all feel comfortable moving around freely and have not worried about the leads moving or migrating on you? I have been gradually increasing my movement but am always worried that one motion is going to get me and cause the lead to move.
Thanks for your thoughts in advance,
