I could usee some advice from anyone who knows about interstim. I really should not complain there are several people that the interstim works great! And Im so happy that they have found relief, but as for me Im living a nightmare! About a year ago my doctor who is treating my over active bladder mentioned putting in a intertim. After several medications that didn't work I finally said yes. The trial worked great! I was so excited! Something finally worked. I finally had relief! Then they implanted the interstim in me. The operation went good, I really wasn't in any pain. I have found the answer. My representive programed it for me before I left the hospital. I went home and started to realized that I had no relief. I called the doctor several days later and jhe told me to come in and they would reprogram it for me. Well it has been reprogrammed about 20 times and nothing. Now several months later Im starting to have alot of pain in my lower back my lower stomach and even my legs. I have no idea why. Im sure it has something to do with the interstim. I want this thing out of me! It doesn't work and causing me alot of pain! I wasn't told by anyone that I couldn't recieve a MRI. Im a stoke patient and may have to one day have another MRI. I don't know. If I had been told that I would have never agreed to have this implanted in me. Question can I have this thing removed? Will my insurance even pay for it to be remove? It paid to put it in but Im not sure if it will pay for it to be taken out. Well I feel better getting all this out. Thanks for listening to me.
