I had the stimulator implanted in October 2012. By November I was
having issues with skin "lesions" over the battery pack. To make a
looonnnggg story short, by the end of June, 2013 the battery was
only in my body by the external layer of skin. I had a really bad
infection, which sent me into surgery for a revision of battery.
Now, I am having severe paid in the area where the laminectomy was
done to implant the paddle leads.
Was this worth it? Not sure....
