Hi all! I had a mini stim implant on 8/28/12.had problems with wire inserted in t8 for lower back an left leg pain do to injury of ll4-l5 .In about two months the wire had broken an shocked the hell out of me ,I could not move ontill my wife brought my magnet to shout it off.So on 1/14/13 had a surgery to replace new wire put in .I was told that they were going to change the mini implant the day of surgery,I did not think of it at that time and let them change it. Come to find out 1/23/13 while watching tv seen a commercial that there is a recall on mini implant.View Thread
Just checking in ,everything seems to be healing well. I still have some pain at the insition site but at least I can keep it on all the time now. I need to have a agustment soon because its not going all the way down the left leg like it was last time.I will be going to pm on feb 7 I will get it done then.View Thread
So far so good ,I do have serial number an modle number. Went to sjm an checked it out did not fall in the numbers,so don't know the reason they change the unit but they did.The main reason was the wire between the unit an paddle had fractured. Hope that don't happen again.Still healing only two weeks out. Since the change.View Thread
If you would like to know more about the difference between the two drugs just go to ASK.com an ask the difference between hydrocordone an oxycodone an it will give you a short answer.By the way fifty beautifulView Thread
Not to be misunderstud ,I am not at all saying that you should take someone's meds .all I was saying that if you test positive for oxycodone after being tested at office that it could be that you are on a high dose of hydrocordone ,but once sent in they can tell the difference.If it was oxycotton that would be different .but once again I am in no way saying that what you did was right.I agree with the other telling your boss that you fogot your meds an would like to go home. SorryView Thread
There is a difference between the two ,but two pills will not show up on a test sent in. When they do a test in the office hydo's can show up as oxy's if you take 4-6 pills a day. So once the test comes back it will show up as hydo's . Don't sweat it,oxy's will only show up if you had taken them 5-7 days pier to the test.View Thread
Hi ,I had aback injury back in 2001 L4-L5 witch ruptured ,Continued to work with it till I could not take the pain any more .My pain is lower back an left leg pain radiating to my foot ,my three little toes are numb.So in 2004 I had a discectimy lamectimy .took about a year out of work to get back to some kind normality .Still had the same simtums as before but not as bad .went back to work in early 2006 .That lasted about a year then my pain got so bad that I had to leave work again .So in 2007 I hade a fusion of L4-l5 with the rest of disk removed.So it took a long recovery from that sugery.I opted to use my own bone instead of rods but still used some screws .After I healed from that I ended up growing too much bone that started too push on my spinal cord so once again had surgery in 2010 to remove soon of the bone .But after all that I still have back pain and lower left leg pain , things don't seem to get much better , in most cases you still will be on pain meds therapy ,an in some kind of pain ..So in still looking for relief I had a pain stimulator implant. Put in in 2011 it helps with some of the pain but still their is the chance that will have problems with that like I did the Led that went to implant had broke so once again had surgery to have that replace. I telling you this to worn you that make sure you think about every thing you may do for pain relief .To me I think it's a on going thing so make smart digit ions about your treatment research every thing good before you do anything. so I still am on meds and use my stim but I don't think it will ever be the same I'm 47 and been feeling with it since 2001 and for the rest of my life I live day by day sorry for this news but it the truth GOOD LUCK AN STAY STRONGView Thread
