I finally got a date for my permenant stimulator on April 26. I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of the dr only doing a epideril and not putting me under? I requested to be put asleep but he kept saying he recommend that I be awake. I don't think I'm gonna be alright with that. Has anyone else had a epideril for a stimulator? I mean I'm so ready for this but I just have not heard of this before. He also said that he wasn't sure of what kind of lead he was going to use a paddle or what so I'm still not sure of that! I'm getting a lumbar stimulator and my trial went good. I'm just a little confused!
