Reply To: Spinal Cord Stimulator – Part 6


Hi Stim Gang

Wow Kaz, I have no idea what to say to you except to stay as calm as you can and hopefully things will be sorted out in the next surgery.

Even though your leads are stitched in place….there is litle to hold them in place if you overstretch etc…it is only 3 months since your op…I was told to be extra cautious for at least 6 months. My leads are anchored in place in two places – one each side of my spine; however certain movements make me tweak like mad even now and I am 20 months post implantation.
So take care of that valued pain relief….PLEASE!

Rob I am delighted for you now that you have a date for your surgery…I will be there every step of the way to help you and many of us here will make sure you dont do the wrong things after the operation.

Thankfully the snow is gone les chances of slipping on icy paths!!

Best wishes
