Possible reason SCS quits working
Possible reasons SCS “quits working?”
I had good results with my SCS at first. It eliminated burning pudendal pain and lessened other pain across my left “lower back”(buttock). Then I sat several hours a day for 6 days in front of my computer on a project. This is something I never would have done without excruciating pain before receiving my SCS. At the end of 6 days I got a sudden agonizing pain in the sitting area and the SCS could not overcome it. Now I am going through a reset procedure. It seems to me that I must go back to my pre-SCS protective regimen of always sitting on a cushion, changing position often and laying down instead of sitting when watching TV etc, even when I get the SCS adjusted right again and I am not feeling pain. This will not feel necessary but maybe it is. Has anyone had a similar reaction or was the SCS failure due to something besides limits on what it can do?
