Nevro 10 Spine Stimulator

Started by MotherNature on 09/07/2018 1:11pm

Implanted 07/09/2018 and activated one week later. There has been no relief whatsoever. The 5yr. old, recalled by FDA, Medtronic one was removed and this one attached to the existing leads. Unlike Medtronic, you can't feel Nevro vibrate in your spinal canal, to know it's working. You check all levels with the charger and remote. I truly prefer it over Medtronic, I just need pain relief. All involved are puzzled. Any thoughts? I would like to talk with anyone who has had a similar experience. Thank you.
