I am glad you are doing better. This is my first time on the forum. My dr. says the SCS is my last resort. I have had migraines for many years, than one day 2 years ago they never stopped. I have been on so many different meds., different procedures and none have worked. I am interested in knowing more about what caused you to get the SCS, what limitations they gave you after the trial. My dr. says it's in my neck so that is where they will put the leads. I have heard about some of the limitations and it doen't sound good for me because I live on a ranch. It is a big dilima. Thanks,
Today is day 2 of my SCS trial. I am doing a lot better today, the only pain I have is the injection site. It is very difficult to try to get in and out of bed my myself, tomorrow I am having a nice recliner delivered so that should be a bit more comfortable. I did have to go to doc today, because I was having a difficult time with one of the meds that he gave me (nucynta, which has only been on market for a year) he told me stop taking it and that he will remove my trial on Monday and that the Implant surgery could be within the next few weeks. It will be bitter-sweet to give the trial up because of the relief that I get from it. My percocet that I am taking, 10mg every four hours, I have been able to decrease it a lot with the trial. YEA!!! So far all is going pretty well with this!
