My device is not working. It stopped working yesterday. I guess it’s because I have not been using it quite a while.
Medtronic - Burning at battery site.
by SqueamishRiverTurtle744 #14834431.0
August 2015 I had my stimulator installed. I had it installed to control pain in back and down legs.
October 2017 I started to get burning pains, when the battery is turned on where the battery is located in my back. It does give me moderate pain relief when it is on., but the burning is massive. If I turn the battery off the burning goes away but the pain comes back. I had the surgery in New Jersey and we now live in South Carolina.
We can not get any answers from the rep. down here. Has anybody else had this problem?
Please let me know. Thank you, Mary Bowden @ MRSFISHERMAN@att.net

The surgeon had trouble gaining coverage. Was in for a 3rd time, and stroked out.
Has left me a memory deficit. Everyday of my life is "50 first dates".
My husband is now my caregiver. These devices should be outlawed.
Medtronic - Implant is out and protruding from the skin
by IntrepidNuthatch902 #14783631.1
My implant is coming out the skin. I have to put dressings on top of it. I am aftaid what will happen wjen tbe joke in my skin is big enough for the implant to fall down. I already had a revision because the leads heal around my skin and had *** through my spine. I still have hole in my spine the size of a pine holeI did not had the hoke in the implant part until after the revision. My original surgery was in March 2018, my revision on September 2018. I do not know what to do. The implant works, I had to change and up the stimulation every 2-3 weeks.
