    Hi Dan,
    Ray here, thanks for the reply, as with your site very informative and responsive. Sorry if my email seemed vague, I have a lot going on in the gray matter trying to digest, consider and committing to having the SCS trial and possible implant. It is great to hear soooo many others have had success with this device, it is something that seems to change their lives back to somewhat normal.
    It is great to hear your success story, for someone to manage going through a reduction in their quality of life to then enhance it is amazing. Man, I can’t even remember when I had a day that was clear enough to function for more than 4-5hr’s at time. Well, again thanks, just finding someone out there that has undergone similar issues and whom has found a remedy is making my decision easier. Take Care and Be Well

    Hi Dan, received my info from the specialist in regard to questions I had, they came back positive…yahoo. The next steps require a pre-trial MRI, an appointment with the specialist then onto the trial. Now that I am feeling more confident with this I can call within the next week and start the process…must admit a little scary.
    I was wondering where the IPG was placed when they did yours, if it is in the front (stomach area) how did they weave the extension through from the back.

      Hey Ray

      Hope your well

      Wow that was quick pal-Better to get it on with it next week rather then waiting

      I know its easy to say “dont be scared” and it is scary but the trial scariness will be mental rather then physical pain wise if that takes a load off your mind(and its much easier then then the permanent implant)-you will just be begging for the device to give you relief and if not then better then to have not tried at all but im sure you will get relief-Gotta stay postive!!(easier said then done i know)As i say on my site i know someone who went 7 weeks on the trail before he got 90% relief?You will get relief im sure it just depend on how much…………

      My IPG was placed in my left front stomach area(next to my belly button) the leads(look like Ethernet cables/phone cables-Sounds worse then it is trust me) go from there around your side(you can physically feel them) and up in to your spine and splinter into two hairlike leads at the base of your spine and stop between your shoulder blades…….

      Is your specialist nice?This will make a ton of difference….Theres no way id be as good if my specialist/team weren’t great along with my family

      Let me know what happens Ray and again any more questions fire way

        Hi Dan,
        Thanks Bud, I had done a lot of research in 2014 and was ready for the trial then until they discovered the stenosis was to severe at L5/S1. So I think all that was really needed was to revisit and confirm that this is the direction…which I have decided because man o man 13 years of pain and lack of mobility is enough for this kid. I next go for an MRI, another specialist meeting for Q&A, then on to the trial, which is better to just get up and do it than sit around waiting and not knowing. I will keep in touch, the process should go quickly now that I have decided and once I contact the specialist for the MRI things will really get rolling. With Thanks,
        RAy
