Implant, hospital, ambulance

Wow! It’s certainly been quite some time since my last post on here. So, here’s what has happened since then. In January this year (2016), I had a trial surgery for a  spinal chord stimulator (SCS). This was done to see if a permanent SCS implant would be of any benefit. In this trial, I had 2 leads inserted and placed at C2 and another 2 leads inserted and placed at T8. The trial went for 10 days where I was limited as to what I could do movement wise. This included no driving.

Where It All Started

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to stop by and read my blog. I started writing about my journey dealing with Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) back in late November 2012. Mostly to help me deal with the changes that this has placed both on my life and my family’s lives.
