Nervo Senza was installed and I felt severe pain and swelling on one leg post-op.  X-Rays and Bloodwork are clear. Has anyone experienced this?

    Even though an SCS install is usually a day surgery, it is a major surgery if you ask me. The pain on the ride home was so extreme for me. The pain in the days following surgery were also extreme for me. I did not have swelling in the leg.  Please call your doctor with these concerns.   
  • Thank you, She's currently admitted and being monitored. The stimulator was turned off hoping things calm down and the leg recovers without additional intervention. They were only able to insert 1 lead which may have contributed to the leg pain.  @jimandjr

    Good to hear. Hope it goes well. Too bad only one lead was installed. My 2 leads got in fine. Thankfully. You really need 2 leads for the electricity to bounce off each other. 
  • @jimandjr Thanks. Scary to read... I wish I could understand why at times theres difficulty inserting the leads.I can't find any documentation about this...pictures,etc. Im hoping someone else recovered well from any leg pain post-op.

    Sometimes, there is not space for leads to travel through the spine. Some, on this board, have paddles installed instead.
