It’s been a little rough this time round. This is my 6th spine surgery. This one was to change the positions of the paddles connected to my spine because the first surgical implant was causing abdominal nerve pain.
I now have full coverage of the nerves going down both legs that got crushed. The paddles are placed at t9/t10 and the wires are brought down my spine to the left where there is a battery implanted under my skin. This control the wave/pulses that mask the nerve pain. The older scar is where they have removed damaged disks and fused my spine with hardware.
I once again am sharing this because I want others to know there is hope. There is no need to suffer in life altering pain. I’ve read so many stories of people giving up and becoming addicted to pain meds – I want to let people know it can get better. I am in some discomfort due to the second surgery being so close to the first. I have to take it easy for a Month to let the paddles heal in place. If it moves I could cause severe damage to my spinal column. This device might not be the answer for everyone who has nerve damage – it’s been a miracle for me. I welcome anyone interested in learning more about the spinal stim implant to leave me a message and I will gladly answer to perhaps help maybe someone else heal.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and healing energy – it made this surgery more peaceful and brought me strength through it all.
