Fabulous to be 10 weeks in and running, embrace your new beginnings, but hold back being full on, it takes a long time for those leads to embed themselves in the tissue and you don't want them migrating (which they can do). Mark56 has great info to help, a snapshot is below.
Put into practice the following to get the best results just for the next few months.

I won't bend beyond reasonable limits,
I will lift only within my limitations,
I will ask for help,
I will avoid stretching for another 6 weeks
I won't twist my body, even to put the car seatbelt on
I will enjoy my pain reduction.

There are many of us on here who have seen wonderful improvements only to overdo activities and later suffer consequences. Rae out there somewhere thought it was a good idea to throw hay bales, I got stuck into kickboxing. Good luck, let us know how you continue.

Default Medtronic Pain stimulator

Hi I am new here and thought I might add my experience as I have had to replace my first (March 09 ) the battery wore out . Last march 17 had a new one put in, in a bad place as my shouder trouble makes it hard to reach to use magnat to control it. This one can be tested with MRI and last month had to have my back MRI to see what is happening now.

I have had 5 back operations and the two stimulators. I was hoping to get information on the MRI medical-esy I don't understand. I have been waiting on a nerolgist to explain and tell me if I need S. or can do without. Anyone here can help me?

Confused nevro 4 years + in

every year nevro tecs try to get implant to work a little better as with drugs you get acclimatised, this time two weeks ago they tried new setting where it sends a pulse for a while then stops to save the battery ( not a good idea for me as the pain is back with a vengeance ) any one out there who has tried this setting for longer than me as I have had to go back to earlier settings.
