Hi Heather - sending those positive vibes your way as requested.
Just realised that you asked me a question on your intro thread...
It's taken a lot of messing about
, but my stim does reach my feet and toes, yes. I have one perc lead and one called a micro-plate, which is a kind of miniature paddle placed in the same way as a perc. It's mid-way between the two - has greater stability than a perc lead and also gives a greater area of coverage, but also obviously less invasive to implant than a paddle lead because it doesn't need any removal or disruption of bone. Do you know what sort of unit your doctor will be using?
All the best, and please let us know how you get on :)
