Well folks, after one yr waiting for the new device, which can be left on during driving, sleeping, and no tingling sensations, guess I am one of the 20 percenters that this Nevro Senza H-10 device doesn't work for....80 percent success rate..??
My original surgeon told me he had a 98 percent rate on his 4 lumbar fusions- however, comma pause...My leg nerves were damaged, I developed a bi lateral sicactia, and my knees are painful..no issue from him, his 2 rods and 10 screws were tight. It was a successful surgery in his eyes.
He wasn't trying to walk in my shoes, surgery date 6/22/15, and still trying to work my sedamentry job...but I can't sit or stand for any long period of time, can't get my PCP, PMS or latest Nero surgeon to refer me for a FCE...
What a catch 22.. I useed up all my vacation and now 120 hrs in the negative for sick leave from this implant recovery time.
Will trying another PCP doctor to provide a referral..
Then try to go on S/T diabilty thru my employer.
Seems like each doctor passes the hot potato back to another doctor...talk about frustration.
So, if you are out there thinking about these new FDA approved device...buyer beware.
Been thru all 3 programs of the device, NO JOY.
Anyone out there with similar results from your SCS?
Original fusion was on L3-L5, and S1.
What say you?
Thank you for reading..
