So after 3 months with no pain meds and detoxing and a successful trial I have an appointment to get the SCS implanted permanently. All I hope is that we can get this done quick the muscle relaxers are not doing a whole lot for my pain. I was on Lyrica but due to the weight gain i had to get off of it and the pain is horrible. So before I go on a tangent what questions should I ask the doctor about the permenant SCS? I am one of those people who have VERY GOOD doctors and surgeons looking out for me and have been very open about helping me Im just not sure the questions to ask.
Live one day at a time and do it with no regrets. I hold my head up high with pride to the fact that i wont let my injury beat me.
