Sorry to inform you that you are going to have to have it removed. I had the same situation, and I was told to use marijuana. I didn't. I've been on all types of pain medication. My trial went well also. I had to keep my implant in my back for over a year, and it has caused more damage then it did good. I am in more pain now than ever. OMG. I can just tell you the horror stories. Please be persistant, and make them take that device out of your back. No matter what they say there is no fixing it. No matter what they say the longer you wait, it won't get any better. My family stayed by my side and watched me suffer. I will keep you in my prayers. Let me know your decision, I hope all goes well for you. that was one of the worst decisions I ever made. Thank youView Thread
