My neuro stim, which is in my right side of my back, not very deep at all, and has never worked. That is not the problem, I have delt with that, it never worked since it was installed May 2010.
My doctor said leave it in, it wont hurt anything. Well I sat in one of those gray folding chairs, you know the ones they use when your kids have an event at school. I went to get up from the chair and it caught on the stim, it pulled me back down into the chair.
This happened to me twice, now I am extra careful when I get up and down or out of a chair. It really hurts now, I dont want it to rip out one of these times. Anyone else had this problem. I dont want to beat a dead horse about the neuro stims themselves, they work great for some, just like anything else, and dont work for others.
That is with anything that people who really are trying to help us cp patients.
So if anyone else has had this particular problem, I think I already know it has to come out before it accidentaly gets torn out. Anyone?
