I had one implanted about 2 weeks ago.
For reference I also have 2 Stim units implanted (6 surgeries – due to doctor issues and one due to mechanical failure).
This surgery was outpatient and was the least painful recovery than any of the other ones.
In 2 weeks I already love the unit. They titrate up slowly but it has already given me more stable relfief than the pills, stimulators, or medical cannabis ever did. Plus I don’t have to carry pills around or worry if I forgot them at home.
I’d be glad to talk more if you want. I’ve been fighting chronic pain (as a result of Lyme disease) for more than 10 years now. Tried many different things.
