Have a Pain Block Stimulator

just had surgery with your pain block simulator implanted about 5 to 6 weeks ago. I dont see any change so far. Trying a couple of programs but I still have the pain I started with. Not sure if there is an answer. Trail went great but this surgery sure hasnt done anything for me. Got to go take my percocet for now and lay down. I am open to your suggestions. Thanks.

    Have you contacted your doctor and/or your rep? You stated you are taking percocet for pain but are you taking anything for nerve pain? I take Neurontin for nerve pain and it really helps, but everyone is different.

    Take care and hope to hear back from you soon.

  • I had to have my stimulator re-programmed several times by the medical tech before I was satisfied with the pain relief -- so don't give up!  Mine is working wonderfully now, and has been since about 4 months after implanting.  I don't know how I could have lived without it!
