Im 26 years old and when I was 14 I broke my back in gymnastics. Long story short, I have tried anything and everything to fix it. I have had to spinal fusions and those didnt work. I went to a new doctor and we tried S.I joints and a few other things. He then told me about this SCS surgery so I decided to try it. The good thing about this surgery is that you can do a trial for a week.
I recieved my trial on Monday and Im still having alot of pain from the actual procedure. Its the 5th day of the trial and Im wondering if anyone else has had this trial and what their experiance was with it.
My doctor put two leads in and the lead on my right side is working well and I can fell the tingling but the lead on the left side seems to be in the wrong place. When i was having the procedure I was awake and it was very painful. We are gonna talk to my dr about the monday and ask why he didnt put me to sleep. But during the procedure as they were putting the leads in and moving them around it gave me an awful sharp pain and when I move or sit a certain way I keep getting that same pain.
Basically if you have had the trial I want to know how to went for you? Were you having the procedure pain during the whole trial? If it worked for you were you 100% sure? Also when you had the trial taken out, what does that entail? Does it hurt? Thanks for your help!View Thread
