Reply To: Spinal Cord Stimulator – Part 5


Hi All

FIsher – sorry you have had family crises & hope things are resloving? For me the soreness is improving, I am inpatient, so that doesn’t help!!! I am hoping that they can tweak the unit at some point but for the moment things are Ok. I agree about the recovery thing – & I am only a week in…..hope my family haven’t buried me under the patio by the time I can be up & running as normal!! If I don’t post for a while, send a search party!! Ha Ha

I am curious to know how long you have been advised about the length of your recovery & return to normality? It seems there are differing views? Just interested to hear yours really?

Rob – elasticated trousers…..hmmmm?? Mine is in my left flank, about kidney height, well above my waist & belt line. I did quiz the surgeon & he said they had tried various places & it seemed from a practical view point most people were happy with this position & less had had it moved from here than other areas? Will wait & see, at least I can still wear my figure hugging jeans – HA HA that is if I had a figure to hug….LOL

continued – lots of things to say & time to say them in at the mo!!
