  • New surgery date

    Lets see whats the saying "3rd times the charm!"

    My uro called my yesterday morning and my InterStim removal date has been set for March 22. One week from today. Hopefully this time nothing will come up that will offset it again.

    I am SOOOO ready to get this thing out. It is really messing with my foot. I figure maybe later if I want to try again I might, but right now with 2 failed ones, I have lost all hope that it will work for me. I just dont think I have the right nerves for it, or my nerves just refuse to cooperate. The only insurance I have is Medicare and I just dont want to cost the governement more money for something that might not work again. Which this might be silly, but it is expensive.

    So keep me in your prayers that I will not get sick or nothing changes the date again for me.
    God grant me the serinity to withstand the days ahead!!!

          *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
          *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
          *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
          *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

              Hi! Patricial 1 I would send your interstim back to the company, to have it checked out to see if there is something wrong with it. I will be praying for you that everthing goes okay. Lots of hugs!!

                Hi everyone and thanks....so far so good....I am sure once they remove it they will send it back to Medtronics, but I am pretty sure this is a "Me" thing and not the unit. I just dont think it works well with my nerves. I do know when I got this one in he stated he had to put it in deeper in the nerves then what he wanted or was comfortable with, I just was not getting a response where he did want it. So I think it has more to do with this than the unit being faulty. The first one I had, the leads moved and that was causing the problems then. Oh well. I am just ready to have it removed it literally has become a pain in the rear lol
