    Katherine,
    Hope this reaches you soon. So sorry about your back pain. kissing

    When I had the interstim on just one side, I was able to use the TENS on the other. I just made sure that the electrodes were as far away from the implant as possible.

    You could probaby try it, gently. I would suggest that you talk to your doc about this, and/or contact Medtronic. However, I am not aware of anything against TENS on their website. I checked about 2 years ago, though.
    Good luck and hope this helps! hi
