Never underestemate your trial run. Wires can move and give you powerfull electodes on an area that does'nt need it. I had 4 and a half hours on my trial scs and as soon as I came out from the OR, my wires moved so that the power was zapping my ass instead of my foot. They basically said they would fix it the next fridays aptmt. After another four and a half hours in the OR, they decided to put 8 wires going upward into my back and sending 4 more wired going down my back for a total of 12 wires.
To make a long story short, the coverage of electons or whatever nerver came close to my pain earea. I would have to turn it on so high that mt foot would be turning red and trembeling. Everytime she tried to adjust the probes, It hurt more and more. Finally I made an apptmt to get it remouved, once I got it removed I have had such major musscle spasms across my whole back. Especially in the inplant spot.
It was a major decsission to make, I just wished I had gone to The Dellon Institute For Neurological tratments BEFORE committed myself into that heavy duty scs .
Sorry for the negativity, but thats exactly what happend to me. Others with good stories are hard to find cuse there all excited and took off from the forum.
Good Luck To All,
and a Pain Free Day..........
