SPINAL CORD STIMULATER TRIAL OVERVIEW

SPINAL CORD STIMULATER TRIAL OVERVIEW

The scs trial was a tease. A temporary implant was inserted from my lower back to mid back. It made all of the difference from my hips down. For the first time in I can’t remember how long, my body felt normal! I didn’t have any sharp shooting pains from my lower back to feet, my legs no longer felt tinder to the touch, I could walk without feeling like I was on pins and needles and my body no longer locked up. -Such great news! The only problem with the trial was that the wires hanging out of my back were super uncomfortable. It felt like a giant splinter back there the whole time it was in so I really didn’t get to enjoy what it would actually feel like.

Moving forward, I made the decision to have it be put in permanently. The procedure is in a month and I’m ready for it to be over with and be recovered already!

Side note: I know I lack excitement about this. It’s just been a really long road and I don’t want to give the scs credit until it’s shown to be successful for a good chunk of time. I will say that I have high hopes for it though!

Wow! It was such a Monday yesterday. I had my lead removed which put me back in my normal chronic pain. (at-least it won’t be for long) And Lance started his CPA! These next 6 months are gonna be busy! Haha.
