Common issues and mistakes with Deep Brain Stimulation programming.

I have done my initial DBS programming. What should I expect?
What are the common mistakes made by patients and programmers?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Parkinson's Disease Support Group.

Hello @mikeharsch and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! I see that you have had DBS. How long ago was this procedure completed? If you care to share more, could you tell us how long ago you were diagnosed with PD? What symptoms were most bothersome to you that made you want to try DBS?

We have had some other members who had DBS and I would like to invite them to join this discussion, @maxaz1, and @leftylucy.

Is it my understanding that you have already had one programming? Is that correct? How are you feeling in general?
