Has anyone had a stimulator that has failed them? If so, how did you know?
I got a stimulator over a month ago after a "successful" trial. The leads were placed to help the CRPS in my torso/trunkel and my shoulder. After the first week and a half the shoulder pain returned with a vengeance. The pain is worse now than before I received the implant. My hand stay in a cripple like position 98% of the time. The pain in my leg/ankle/foot is also worse. My foot also looks crippled a lot and when trying to walk, I'm almost on my ankle. The incision pain is still there...its very tender to touch around the battery pack. When I try to sit back its like the battery has prongs on it that's digging into my back. My symptoms of burning and sweating has gotten worse. I now have the burn where the battery pack is.
I'm officially giving up on this thing!!! I cry more everyday now than before they put it in. Its very frustrating because everyone has all these good things and high hopes with it and I'm living in Hell! The pain is so bad that I have arrhythmias now (which isn't good)...actually about 300 within the last month! I want this thing out NOW!!! 😢😢😢😢😢
