Hi, @martyk. @ifetimepain here. I have the Nevro SCS and it has to be charged daily, takes 20-30 mins. You also have to charge the charger by plugging it into the wall at bedtime. In the mornings, I unplug it from the wall, put the paddle behind me on top of the device, and when it finds the device (takes a bit of shifting around) you'll see 1, 2, or 3 circles light up – kind of like the bars of cell phone reception. Then you just sit there till it beeps at you. The rechargeable implant should last 5-10 years.

Hi, once you find the device can you secure the paddle with a velcro strap or something like that to secure it in place and move around while the device is being charged for 20 to 30 minutes. I've been told With the DRG SCS made by Abbott, you don't need to charge that at all. Does anyone have the Abbott SCS and can comment on that?

How long have you had the SCS in you?
