So this little box is pretty amazing. Unfortunately, I found out that the pain is still there, and it's at the level it was almost 4 years ago. I used to be on 90 mg of OxyContin a day, now I'm at 15 mg! So that's pretty awesome - as long as the stim is turned up enough. It can change as everything heals and the other night it just started going bonkers - like ramped up really high. So I turned it down. All good, could still feel it but could tune it out. Next day I was out at a certain home improvement store I hate and we had to wait almost an hour, so I ended up sitting down. I don't know if the stim shifted or what, but when I got up the pain was so bad, I couldn't walk. My leg didn't even work because nothing but these damn pain signals were getting through. Instant cripple. It took me 10 minutes to get back to the car with my husband holding me up.
I was able to turn the stim back up when I got to the car, and just like that, pain gone. It really made me appreciate it.
