Expectations after implantation

Next week I'm getting my trial for a SCS.  First, what are the limitations for behaviors during the trial?  Secondly, what are the restrictions after the implantation?  I had spinal cord damage in my neck in 2015 and had a fusion and laminectomies at C-7.  My legs and feet were affected.  My feet/toes are numb and my legs "feel" tight all the time especially when I exercise.  Apparently my legs aren't "really" tight but they feel tight and limit my ability to exercise.  It can be very painful.

 Secondly my lower back is a mess.  I don't want to have back surgery because it seems to make people worse.  I'm wondering if my back pain and leg discomfort will both be helped by a SCS.  I guess I'll find out with the trial session.  No doctor has fully explained my nerve problem in my legs and feet.

    Your scs rep and your doc will explain the limitations when they install the trial. Hope it works out for you. Love my scs. 
  • How did your trial go?  Are you going ahead with implant?
