  • Waiting

    Well after all was said and done with my Trial even though it was not much fun, I am going through with the surgery. I am waiting for my doctor's office to call me back with the surgery date. After the interstim trial was removed I wanted it put right back in. I hope my surgery goes as well or better. I am keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    Hope all of you had nice Holidays and
    Happy New Year to you!!!

    Hi Kara:
    The InterStim Implant is way different then the trial, it not as painful as the trial and it really is not that bad of a surgery at all..
    You will have a sore back due to the surgery but you will be able to get around on the second and third week after surgery...
    The stimulation is much different then the stimulation by the trial, you will not feel it as strong as the trial ok...
    Have a wonderful holiday and all the best in your health and happiness in the year 2001 Kara..
    Keep us posted on your surgery date ok..

    Hugs Debbie

      Kara, I was so worried about my surgery and I worried for nothing. The pain was maybe a 2 - I only needed one pain shot in the hospital and took 2 pain pills - my flares are 100000x's worse than the discomfort I had from the surgery. Every day I thank God for my Dr and for my implant (except I am having a horrible time using cell phones )teri

            Teri, I don't think it's the interstim --- my cell phone doesn't work very well indoors. I think it's the kind of cell phone I have. I've been thinking about getting a different kind.
