Re: spinal cord stimulator questions

Vicky:

Thanks so much for answering Dev's questions (as they are my questions too). I may be headed for an SCS soon.

Did they implant your battery pack in your buttocks? My concern is I may face a knee replacement in the next 10 years and I didn't want the battery pack to be somewhere associated with a leg that may need surgery. I've also heard of it being implanted in the abdomen.

Thanks
Karin
