So Im about to get the Boston Scientific trial for cervical radiculopathy.
For you guys who have gone through the trial, what was your experience of it? Did you go all out that week and pushed your limits to see how the scs could help you in peak type of situations, or were you just too sore from the procedure and had to take it easy?
I dont know yet if my trial will be one week, almost hoping it will be longer so I can really try it, but I guess up to insurance company, and one week fairly common.
Would love to test my limits that week and see what the device can do for me but maybe not possible in such a short time? I see myself that week working full time and more, driving for hours on end, doing yardwork and weight training and wiping myself out. Just kiddin, that would set me up for failure Im sure.
From what I understand, the doctor is looking for confirmation that I feel 50% or more relief from pain with the device?
Would love to hear your experience from trial week!
