Thanks, I will definitely keep everyone updated. This is something we don't have a whole lot of information on.
It's been so long since my trial I for get what brand mine is. I think it's the Medtronics. I'll have to look at my booklet to make sure. I know the rep said it had paddle leads with a lot of leads they could program and said it should be no problem to cover both areas. The wire lead covered over 6 ribs on my left side, so I believe the paddle one should cover that and then some.
I did find out yesterday my surgery will be some time in February. The big cases that were going to be moved to February stayed scheduled in January.
