I had to go through hell for the past year just to get approved for a trial stimulation implant. Finally had it done last week and the results were not exactly what I was expecting. I passed the preliminary psych eval by explaining that I wasn't expecting a miracle. Now that the trial is in I found that if I want to walk I have to turn it off in order to control my legs as well as have any sensation below my waist. When resting I need the unit set to fifty percent just to feel it, and then the sensation is unpleasantly like a jackhammer in my back. Now I only have the sub-perception mode on and am wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I really wanted this to give me even a little relief since none of the Doctors I see will prescribe pain meds anymore. I'd be happy with even a semblance of my life back.
