Spinal Stimulator trial

Started by Vydavis on 10/11/2018 11:02pm

Tomorrow is my day to have a trial for the stimulator. I’m in a fog of the unknown.
If someone would be so kind as to type me through the first day thru the 7 th, I’d appreciate it.
L5 nerve impingement since 2017 3tier fusion
L-3,4,. L4-5.,L5-S-1.
I awoke from surgery with pain to my right leg, followed by burning,stabbing pain from right knee down and under foot.
My foot does not rotate, it only pivots from left to right.
I’m Unbalenced.
Going back 15 years ago, I have a left drop foot from laminectomies.
Life is hard..
wondering if there is an easy way to get through this next week regarding Boston Scientific stimulator.

I’m looking at feedback a to join a team

I'm getting the St Jude Medical brand. The rep is supposed to call me and go over everything before the procedure. Is it too soon to tell if you are getting relief yet and did they tell you to keep taking your pain meds? Thanks

I had drop foot on my right side back in 2003. They had me wear a fracture boot and after 3 months I was able to lift my foot and not trip anymore.
