Hello Yaz, I hope you dont mind me shortening your name, but anyway I has a neurostim installed in May of 2009 and my recovery time was minimal as I remember. I had to have the first one relocated as it was put in to deep the first time and could not make the connection to the battery pack.
The recovery time for the second one was a little longer as it was the 2nd time the area had been disturbed. I had no luck with the 2nd one either, I think the scar tissue from the first installation was so much that the 2nd time the battery pack, or I should say the battery could not be charged (the one that was inside my back) so basically its just sitting there, wires and all doing nothing.
At this point, I have given up the idea, I mean it seems to me to try again would be of no use. But the equipment does not bother me, its there and maybe at sometime I will consider trying again. I rather doubt it though.
Well good luck to you, hope it works well for you, take care,
