I haven't posted in months but I'm hoping you can help answer a question.
In about a month I'm having another surgery to move my battery from buttock to stomach, it's been giving me hell for the past 6 months and they have decided its too close to the surface and needs to be moved.
I've also been having a lot of back pain which I have had my whole life to some degree but nothing like what it is now. What I am wondering is can the SCS be programmed to cover back and leg if they are going in to move the battery when it was only implanted to cover leg ? And if so will this mean I loose some coverage of the leg which is what my implant is for?
Don I know you mentioned in your response ages ago that you had tried this but with no success if you don't mind would you share your experience with me ? I don't want to ask the programmers to do it if I'm going to loose coverage to my leg as I can't go back to that pain again.
Thankyou guys I hope you are having as pain free of a day as possible xx
