    It's okay to post the doctor's name. The only time you can't is if the post is negative --- which puts the ICN at risk.

    Warm hugs,
    Donna

    I'm sorry to hear that! I had a revision surgery last year. Before the revision I had a similar test an EMG to see exactly which nerves the interstim were stimulating. At the same time I had a new test in the other side where I did not had an interstim to see if I was helped with 2 interstim (which was correct) The revision surgery and the implant of the new one was decided after having this test.
    It was done in the Methodist Hospital in Houston Texas. I don't know if it was the same as mine the one you had. I had a catheter and a rectal electrode when the representative was changing parameters, and trying different electrodes.
    If you wish you can send me a private and I can give you my doctors name.

    My lead wire has migrated some

    Well, I found out Monday that my lead wire has started to migrate since the implant 8/00. They reprogrammed it and I am seeing some improvement. I got mine done in Indianapolis by Tom Benson. He did a great job and had this machine that actually tested the nerves (kinda like an EMG) to see which program was best. I had it reprogrammed in New Orleans. Does anyone know of other doctors who use the EMG thingy? I was told if I had it replaced in New Orleans I would have to be awake with little pain relief and I DON'T want to go that route when I can go somewhere else and be asleep AND know for CERTAIN it's programmed right.
