A short background for me is that I was injured in 2010 while lifting a patient at work. I herniated a disc and had right leg and lower back pain. I was treated with about 7 steroid injections/ epidural injections, all of which were in different spots and made things much worse. After waiting 3 years and trying PT and chiropractors I got a second opinion and had a laminectomy at L5-S1. My back never felt better but my leg did at about 6 months post op the leg pain was back and worse. It was found in 2015 (18 months after surgery) that I had scar tissue pressing and the disc was still herniated along with L4-L5, facet joint arthritis and disc degeneration. I had a Spinal Cord Stimulator trial March 21 of this year and had the permanent implant on the 28th. The trial worked really well- about 80% most of the time. My leads were tunneled for the trial as we felt my chances for success were high. I am now 4 days post op. I have a burning where the battery was implanted- sort of the same feeling you might get when rubbing alcohol is poured into a wound. My biggest concern though is that when I sit up in bed or move a certain way it almost feels as if the leads are tugging under my skin? I told my PM and he said not to worry that I was likely just feeling the tape from the bandage pull. Now I am noticing that if I am sitting up and I relax my back muscles or slouch in the least bit it feels like the leads are moving up, and like something is poking me in my middle (thoracic) spine, almost like the leads are poking into something. I have been pretty active since the surgery, but not lifting more than a few pounds and trying not to bend. I did raise my arms up forgetting that I wasn't supposed to a couple of times but had no pain with it. I had to bend once (I dropped something and there was no way around it as I was at the CVS alone. I'm concerned that maybe the leads have moved already? After two surgeries within 10 days I am worried about a revision this early. I can't use the tonic stimulation at all (my rep programmed 1 tonic setting and 3 burst) the tonic stimulation is either too strong where the poking feeling is or too low to get relief. The poking feeling is very uncomfortable. I would love it if I could continue to get the same tried without it. I also feel it when the scs is off when I move a certain way or slouch but it's worse when it's on. I'm new to this and could use any guideance or help that I can get! I have a St Jude Proclaim Elite. Thanks!
