resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I had my Medtronic Stimulator implanted Dec.9 2010. On March 18, 2012 I notified my Pain Dr that my SCS wasn't working on my right side at all. After 10 months, 4 exrays, 5 DR's and 3 Medtronic Reps later on Jan. 4, 2013 a new Rep told me I had no connection on my right side, my wires were broken. This requires surgery that 10 months ago I was prepared to have done. Right now it is impossible and I have to wait till I have time to let these new lead wires to scar in...atleast 3 months recovery. I feel I was treated less than any human should have had to endure the pain and suffering I have. I had 3 epidural steriod injections during this time also had to be taken to the E.R. in horrible pain and was told after xray that I had pulled major back muscels, no mention of broken lead wires. Do they not show up on xrays...guess not.Who's neglegence, I feel it is the Medtronic Reps that failed me worse and all the DR's in between.
