Getting implant today ,,, update
Hi everyone, I know its been ages since I wrote but I have been lurking on the pain management board. I am having the stim implant trial put it today. I have thought about it a long time, and my pain doc recommends I go ahead with it. I feel to stay in compliance with him I should try it. My surgeon's office said they could do a second surgery trying to shave down the screws, and clean out the scar tissues etc, but my pm doc said if the first one didnt work a second one will only make me worse and I dont want to spend 6 months in a brace again.
With the economy the way it is, and me actually working 32hours a week, I think I need to go with keeping my job. I would love to hear from anyone that has had the medtronic stim implant. I went on their website and signed up for an ambassador to call me but it was only a brief call and they wont give you their email for follow up.
Hope you are all doing well. Im always thinking about you guys! Take Care!
