Good evening, I had my St Judes Proclaim SCS utilizing the BURST method implanted recently. This SCS is MRI compatible and does not have a rechargeable battery. The surgery was 2 weeks ago this Friday (January 27th). I have been given very strict restrictions, no bending, twisting, lifting over 5 pounds, no raising my arms above my head, no reaching, no pulling, no pushing for six to eight weeks.... I am trying so hard to follow all of these but I am deathly afraid I am going to make a mistake without thinking and mess something up. I have read other posts where other doctors have said that there is no need for these type of restrictions. Could you give me some of your experiences with the healing process and if you had any difficulties. My leads do not have paddles but the doctor did tell me they were sutured but I will still need to be very careful so that the scar tissue will secure the leads and keep them from migrating.
I appreciate any and all information you may have.
