Yes I still have one. The original reached it's time limit and another one was put in. And when that one was getting close it was replaced with a new state of the art one. I can now have MRI's and the technician is going to work with me next month to teach it to tell when I lay down and automatically turn down the stimulation.
I plan to have one always because I know what the nerve pain is like and do not want to feel it! I know a lot of the patients don't have patience enough to work with it and give up. It's not a one time inserted and all is well. It has to be adjusted quite a bit the first couple years but gets less and less. When I have something done surgically it has to be adjusted because it is very sensitive and can get out of whack. If I fall it has to be fixed again, things like that.
I have encouraged everyone who has come to me, to have one put in if the pain is so bad you can't control it.
I'm actually on my third doctor, the others have moved or retired. I'm like an old shoe that keeps hanging around.
