I have an Advanced Bionics unit and I have never experienced any itching. I have had my unit for about
4 years now. If I remember correctly, my trial lasted about
6 days. I also experienced pain and discomfort the first few days at the incision site on my back. In fact, I had trouble at first finding a comfortable position. I agree, you need at least 48 post surgery to begin your evaluation of the unit. During the first 24 - 48 hours you are recovering from the incision surgery and are trying to normalize everything so that you can get a true reading as to whether the unit works for you. Good luck.
