Reply To: Spinal Cord Stimulator – Part 5


Hi all,
I hope you are all resting up and taking it easy. This cold weather is certainly not doing us any
favours. Rob how you feeling are you still very sore from the trial or has it settled. You will probably just start feeling better and then you will have to start again with the permenant model.
Liz i hope you havent moved from the sofa today. Day time tv is the pits which is why i lie on my bed with the lap top at least you can communicate with the outside world.
Caroline im so sorry that you are still having problems with the stimulation when you move it definitely sounds like its too sensitive as it shouldnt make you jump like that but at least the hospital are aware and they will be able to do something about it. I know you dont want to go through surgery again but if it puts it right then it will be well worth it.
Chris sorry to hear that you are going through a rough patch i hope things settle soon. Once the battery symbol starts flashing on my hand set i still find the stimulation lasts a couple of weeks sometimes a bit more.
Just make sure they put you on the waiting list for a replacement and i hope you dont have to wait to long.
Take care everyone and i will chat to you all soon.
