I thought I'd dash off a few lines to see if anyone knows how Jess has been doing recently (well, I hope)? Please let her know that I'm thinking about her and cheering her on .
Best wishes to all, little bear

She has had alot to deal with lately. I'm sure she'll be thrilled you checked up on her. When she sees this, I'm sure she will fill you in.
Take care..... :grouphug:

It is so nice to hear from you! :) Well to make a long story short, as far as stim things go, I think I officially can be put in the category of failure. I have to meet with the new medtronics rep on the 8th and with my surgeon. I went to turn it on and it won't work, and this isn't something that can be repaired from home I guess. Plus, the stim shifted again, I don't know how...but it's sticking out worse and hurting, so I am getting it removed I think.
Anyway, thanks for thinking of me.

Jess I am so sorry things have gone this way for you. I know it is a big disappointment when you go through the revision and things turn out this way. Mine works but not like it should before the revision and the accident. Let me know if I can do anything.....

Hi Jess, I am sorry to hear that the stim did not work out for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Jess, I'm so sorry to hear about this (and to hear that things are rough for you generally right now). I'm shocked to hear that you couldn't even turn the machine on after the surgery--geez! This must be more than a little demoralizing. You have been such a source of support for so many people on the boards, I hope that we can return the favor. I also hope that things start to improve soon as far as everything else is concerned. Please let us know how the meeting with the rep and the surgeon goes--and when you are scheduled to have the stim removed.
Sending you lots of gentle hugs and all my very best wishes, little bear

Oh, Jess, I am so VERY SORRY! You have been through so much yet are always here to support & encourage everyone else. How I wish there was something I could do to lighten your burden. :kissing: Please know there are many who truly care about and are praying for you. When you can, please keep us updated. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ahh ya know, I love logging on and reading such caring responses. It makes me feel better! :) Well no news really so far, I meet on July 8th with the uro/surgeon and the rep. I am hoping that this bulge I am feeling is swollen skin, but I can sure feel metal. The odd thing is, it doesn't bulge when I sit, only when I stand and lay. I can't figure this out, but when I stand it really hurts. It's like he fixed the problem so I can sit, but walking for awhile and laying on my back or side? Forget it! I get so fed up sometimes, but I guess if it wasn't meant to be, it wasn't meant to be.
I won't knock the stim, as it worked a miracle for me when it was working, but I will say this...anyone considering it should really weigh the negatives and the positives and ask..."What would I do if I were faced with the possibility of a failure"...it sure is a tough question.
Anyway, I'll get off my soap box now and give you angels some :grouphug: !!!
Hugs & Love,

I'm so sorry you are having problems with your interstim --- I know you were one who was helped so much. Hopefully, you'll find some answers in your meeting on the 8th.
Sending warm hugs and well wishes,

I am sorry things didn't work out, and if you want it removed then go for it.. I think if you are not comfortable with how things are going, you will make the best decision for you.. I wish things would have been different for you, but, sometimes a miricle only lasts a short while.. I often thought what would I do if it stopped working. What comes to mind, is well it worked for x amount of years, so it wasn't a failure it was a treatment that worked for a while..
good luck to you, and you know how to get a hold of me..

I haven't been on here in ages. I am having trouble also with my stim. I stay so depressed, but I had to write to you and tell you I am sooooo sorry.
I wish I could say something to help you. I miss all of you on the board, but it hurts so bad when I sit.
Tell Brat hell o for me, Cindy if you see this write to me.

Just thought I'd dash off a few lines to say that I hope that your Drs. appointment went well and that it helped you to sort through all this.
Best wishes, little bear
PS Susan, I am so sorry to hear that you aren't doing well either--sending you all my best wishes too.
