had my trial stimulator put in today, it just stopped

i called the lady that was helping me, left a message, still have not heard anything, then called the Dr. he said to call medtronic.... called another number she gave me, and still have not heard anything... everytime i try to turn it on there is a phone receiver, and a Dr emblem... what does that mean? i have been very careful and have not done anything strenuous, all i was doing was sitting in the chair when it happend... help please. i am really scared. it has taken me a yr to decide on this device to be put in. can someone please tell me what that means?

O' my!!! I am so sorry this has happened to you and I will pray that it simply is a programming glitch and nothing more. It sounds like tonight will be a little long for you as you wait to hear from meditronics. Please remember to come back and keep us posted as many of us are considering these and the more information we have the better.

well, it was a glitch... had to do a few things to make it work again! i must have touched a button he said. i was just so worried it had come out! but all is good now!~ the only thing i don't like is my back is itching soooo bad! they have it all taped up and it is healing.. i can't scratch it under the tape! other than that my pain has subsided quit a bit! i would dare say over 50% that makes me happy! been a long time coming!

thanks for the prayer!!!
