I just had my St. Jude Medical implant one week ago, and find this to be a more involved process that I thought. I understand all procedures have a period of healing before you can truly determine if it is successful. My surgeon used the paddle, instead of the "round" leads, since it seems those have a history of "rolling" and causing problems. However, the site where my paddle was placed on/in my spine is very uncomfortable and causing a lot of pain. I am 7 days out of the procedure and all other surgery related pains and calming down, but not the site on my spine. I regularly get "zapped" if I move the wrong way. Any thoughts on this from someone in a similar situation?
