I just had my SCS on 6/6. My doc told me that two weeks was all I needed. I'm 41 and have had 7 previous back surgeries resulting in 4 fusions, one had to be done twice because of 4 broken screws just 6 weeks after that particular surgery. Anyway, I am a restaurant manager in an extremely busy restaurant (minimum 10 hour shifts on your feet). My 1st three days of work were crazy hard. The pain between my shoulders was the worst. I do feel like every day gets a little better. I sometimes get a sharp pulling pain right at my battery site. And I also started to experience a small amount of swelling of my left foot. Any thoughts??
