Hi Tony, so sorry to hear about the difficulties you are having with SJM. It seems like there would be reps closer to you and more willing to help. Have you contacted the company (not the reps) about the refusal of treatment? I guess I am lucky, I have three great reps that cover my area and can program me, if needed, usually within a week. They set me up with many programs on both the cervical and thoracic stimulators...gave me a lot to work with.
I sure hope you can find some relief soon!
