Laminectomy site pain after SCS installation

Hello Group. I had my SCS implanted in November 2018. I had paddle leads installed and they did a laminectomy between my shoulders in order to install the paddle leads. I am still to this day dealing with severe muscle tightening (like a tornequate between my shoulders. I also get spasms at the same time. It really never seems to let up. Am I still maybe healing after almost a year? Or is this the norm after this procedure. This, coupled with my lower back pain from FBSS after a four level fusion surgery in my lumbar. I am miserable all the time. Has anyone experienced this sort of thing? Or am I a minority? I look forward to hearing your comments.

    That sounds like an awfully long time to me, I had a scs for several years, after the implant surgery I was uncomfortable for 3-4 weeks, after that I was fine.

  • Thanks for the reply Chip. It is something I have been discussing with my PM Doc.
