Thanks mamabear62, could you share with us where you son's pain is located? Mine is in the toes of my foot from 2 prior surgeries. I had the Medtronic traditional SCS implanted last year it only gave me slight relief and I had a little back pain, so I had it removed on August 2nd. I'm told by my new doctor that the DRG which is made by Abbott is much better for targeting pain the the feet. I'm considering the trial for that. The trial I had from Medtronic was only for 5 days but because of all the tape, it was very painful. I guess the trial for DRG will be painful where the leads all placed and taped in.
