Some. A little bit disappointed because the trial sent the signal in a 360 degree pattern, the implant is much more focused and I think it's not in the EXACT same place as the trial was. It's kind of stupid because the permanent implant should replicate the trial, and I know it's not. The trial gave me 80% relief which was almost unbelievable! The implant now reduces my pain maybe 30-40% – which the company considers a success. I know it could be better.

I'm sorry that you didn't get the 80% with the permanent one. Which SCS did you have implanted?

Did the same doctor do the trial and the permanent SCS? If not, perhaps the leads weren't placed in the same position.
