It does help with my pain in my back and legs. They can put stimulation

just about any where the pain is through the nerves. Boston Scientific is the 

one I had implanted but the Doctor that did the surgery was in South Carolina.

The most be implanted of your left buttock and yes it be a little uncomfortable to me

but I don't have a lot of meat back there either. VA uses Boston implants also. if she lays

on her right side then the left would be the spot. I once wanted it remove but I stayed with

it. I sometime cut it on my sleep move and it puts me out and when I awake pain level 1-2 

the main thing is getting the leads where you have the pain also pick the programs that you fell

that works for you the best it was 4 programs maybe more now. Good luck this might help

Roger that porgee

Thanks for the Info.

she went in and had another consult after doing the trial run,  they are going to have to use 4 leads and a Paddle type thing (not sure what that is?)  the Dr can't do the implant because her spine is crooked and turn some in the lower lumbar area  from osteoporosis, so a surgeon will need to do the implant  putting the leads to the lumbar down for enough to help the lower back pain and pain in right hip and leg...they will implant it on her left side beings she sleeps on her right side..this is her last resort of controlling her pain   we hope it works....

Also to add she went and seen an eye Dr yesterday and the Dr mention that her getting all those pain steroids injections over the last 3 years  is  a part of the cause she has caracts in her right eye and blurr vision at times...he recommended stop the injections  if she can and hope and pray the stimlulator works  he ex amend her eyes and she needs to have new glasses ..stronger I think? so waiting on them to come back  and we'll see how that helps her eye sight.??

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
