  • I had my 2nd interstim Trial & placment

    Hello all,

    I had my 2nd interstim Trial May 8, 2007 it went very well
    this time around I slepped threw the hole surgery.
    The reason i had to do the trial again is because when I turned
    the interstim up I got leg pain it was coming from the interstim my
    Doctor said and also because I also have a bad back, I had back surgery
    3 years ago. I got reprogramed several times but nothing helped.
    So my Doctor derided to place the leads on my right side.
    I said OH NO! NOT AGAIN its not that its painful well some times it is
    its just doing the Trial is Anouing also I am afraid sometime if I am
    not careful I might get the wire stuck on something SCARE!!!!!
    So I had my surgery and it went well better then before
    the first surgery the trial part well they don't put you to sleep
    its called the twilight zone your half sleep half awake when that
    happened with the trial surgery I felt the pain I am not sure if I felt
    him cutting but I felt something it was pain and sharp. I now I felt
    the interstim busing me. well this time around No pain, I sleeped the
    whole time. now its day 7 No pain in leg and the interstim is helping
    me of course I new that it would. I have 1 week & 5 days left until
    the implant BOY I can't wait.

    OK May 25th I had the inplant surgery for the interstim
    it went well its now day 2 I am doing good still in some pain.
    and I can go for 5-6 hours with our peeing !!!!!! YEH!!!!
    and sleep for 8-9 hours.

    Boy I am so so sore this time around my mom changed the dressing oh my god it hurt so bad
    I can't take my pain meds right now because I am so sick to my stomach.. I don't now why
    it could be the meds. but other wise I am ok..

    Please call your doctor and let him/her know the pain meds are making you ill. They can prescribe anti-nausea medication to help so you can get some pain relief.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe
