  • Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I am having trouble knowing where to respond.  I am answering to Algovita forum and Start of Algovita Trial.

    I had back surgery, Spondolisthesis, L-4,L-5.  The cartledge went into my spinal canal. After the surgery, the cage failed and migrated into my spinal canal. Then the  second surgery caused damage to the nerves to my feet.  I have Peripheral neuropathy.  I have my trial remote set on P-5, 15.  I'm trying everything. Pray for a miracle.  I'm debateing the remote for the rest of my life.  I'm prone to loosing things.

    Don't worry about losing the remote. I have mine attached to my car/house keys. It is always next to me so I can change the program or intensity when necessary. Also, my phone is always next to me. I will lose my car keys sometimes and then realize they are always right next to me lol

    You can change the program and intensity. I suggest you do that so u can know what the Algovita can do. I had 2-3 programs for my trial. I have 5 now. My remote can handle up to 6 programs. 

    Yours is set on 15 but should be able to go as high as 50. They may help your feet. Go ahead and try it. You have nothing to lose. 

    There is an algovita forum? I need to look for that. 
  • Has anyone with the algovita implant received an Error code E09 with turned off the stim?  If so what was the cause and correction?   Also FYI last week my stim battery was discharged down to a red 10% and I could not charge it.  The rep had to place the battery "at rest" then restart the battery and then I was able to charge it.  In the future he will provide me a magnet to place the battery at rest and then I should be able to charge it.  Any comments will be appreciated.
