Spinal cored stimulator trial. Wow. What an invention!

I got home from hospital the other day after spending a week with a wire coming out of my back.

Before it was removed it was amazing! I have back, vest and leg pain. The stim could only help my leg but it normally is about 7/10 with the stim it was down to 3-4. I can't wait to get the full implant in a few months. The only downside was a nick to the epidura. The "film" that holds the csf fluid in place. It caused an intense headache that I have never experienced in before in my life. This was resolved by a spinal blood patch that eased it almost strait away.

I would still say if you need one and get the chance to have one then do it. I don't know who came up with the idea of stims but thank you who ever you are!
