I am inquiring about other implant patients..I will shortly undergo a third surgery. This device has minimal management but it is an option to pain meds. I have a strong will and tolerance for pain. I am only 33 years of age, therefore I want desperately to still function. However, I live a constant lie and am in major pain everday of my life. Anyother out there with this problem? Anyone ever remove the device after awhile? 4 back surgeries and now being hit by a car is causing another one. I am at my wits end and am not hte type of person to admit my problems to friends and loved ones, I hate to complain>>> Look forwrd to someone elses story!!!
