Scheduled for Trial Wednesday

Started by 1brokenhombre on 08/20/2017 9:34pm

What should I expect? Is a 50 mile car ride home practice or should I stay in hotel nearby in case I need an adjustment?
Just thinking about that pain of procedure doesn't get me anxious. I'm going to do trial regardless its gotten to the end of the road.
Another fusion and now more levels to stabilize the failed fusion an 8-9 hour operation and a year recovery surgeon wouldn't attempt.

How helpful is the rep of Medtronics stimulator in recovery?
