Hi, Robb - I've had two stimulators put in place. Being only the 6th at Mayo, guess I was a ginea (sp) pig. That was in 98. They shaved 1/2 my hair off so I complained about their choice of hair stylist!! The procedure was adventuresome for me as I was awake for the first part. Recovery was nauseous with a headache but only for a day. Stayed one more day then was sent home. The 2nd stim was more advanced. Head shaved only for a tiny spot for the burr hole (sounds more gruesome than in reality). This one was an overnight stay with another headache.
Have you scheduled your surgery yet? I'll be gone next week but would love to hear from you. Good luck!
