SCS Revision

Jan 24, 2016 1:42 PM

1/13 I was implanted with Boston Scientific Precision with percutaneous leads for left leg CRPS II. Due to lead migration and anatomical midline being different than expected the device stopped providing any sort of relief.

Next week I am scheduled for a hardware upgrade. The Boston Scientific Precision Spectra with Coveredge 32 paddle.

With the paddle I won't have to worry about lead migration and my unilateral pain can be addressed appropriately.

I am optimistic that most, if not all of my pain will be gone. Very exciting news!

I am so very happy to hear this!!! I also have SCS and its implanted at my brain stem and C1. It has broken several times and I have the paddle (the company is ANS), and it was revised 5 times due to migration, shorting out and finally, when I fell down the stairs in my house, I broke my arm and fractured my neck (breaking the SNS). I have too many things wrong with my cervical spine to have it removed without paralyzing me. I'm glad that with the paddle they're using on you, there is no chance for migration and you will get the relief you need. How I wish mine was still working. {{{{Hugs}}}} πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»
