Has anyone had the Stimwave spine stimulator installed?

Hello to ALL! I have a severe back injury and even after three surgeries and several fusions, I am still experiencing severe and chronic pain. My pain management specialist is talking about a spine stimulator. After some research I located the Stim Wave. With this unit, only the leads are implanted. No wires come through. The antenna is worn like a pager on your belt.

Has anyone tried one of the Stim Wave stimulators yet? Any feed back on them?

I had 2 stimwave peripheral implants for my coccydynia. One on one side, one on the other. The first one was too strong to use. I couldn't get it to turn down enough to where I could use it. The other side wasn't strong enough, couldn't get it high enough to do any good. It was very frustrating. I ended up having them both removed after several years.
