SCS Battery placement options

In the middle of Nevro Senza trial. If it leads to the permanent placement, what are some Pros & Cons of each of the locations that the battery/implant can go? I've tried to think of some Pros & Cons myself in regards to how my lifestyle, sleeping, etc, is, but know I'm not able to think of everything in why one area of placement is better or worse or more annoying over the other. Any insight anyone can give on this & what experiences they have had with them (back, butt, abdomen....)? Thanks!


  • I had mine placed lower back, right side right at the end of a love handle (LOL). I sleep mostly on my front, but some times on my left side and back. Personally I would not want it in my but as it would bother me sitting. Mine has been in for almost four months. Yes I know it's there but I can sleep in any position.

    My ortho asked me one question before the install. What side do I sleep on? The rest is history.
