Bubbie, Welcome to the site. I just wanted to give you a little info regarding the SCS implant. After my implant, I went back to work 2 days later. I traveled by air several weeks later and did not have any problems. There will be restrictions on no bending, lifting etc as the wound will not be healed and the leads will need time to set in place. My concern would be going to the beach as already stated, the wound may not be healed yet and you will need to protect the site. You certainly want to talk to the Dr. doing the implant and the SCS rep about
your plans and get their input. I have my email listed and will answer any question that I can regarding the implant. Do remember that each persons experience is different. How I healed or others may be different thgan what you experience. I use my unit 24 hours a day and I am actually on about
3 times the meds I was on previous to the implant. Some people have a 50% reduction in pain and med use. Good luck.
