Thank you for sharing your experience!
So sorry you are battling this nasty neuropathy/RSD as well. Such a frustrating condition to say the least.
You certainly are not alone and I'm so glad you found us!
You'll find the support here to be fantastic and we'd love to have you stick around to let us know how this goes for you.
I know the long wait between the trial and permanant can seem like torcher. Hang in there tho, as I'm sure it'll be well worth it.
As far as the worries and fear of the unknown, it's completely normal. Stick with us and you won't feel alone in this. We are constantly lifting one another up throughout the gammet of emotions that tend to go along with this. You'll be fine!
and NO, you are not a negative Nellie!
I'm glad your Rep showed up for the consultation with your new Dr. So, at least it's not like having to 'start over'. Hopefully this doc has done many of these implants and you'll feel confident in him.
How are your pain levels since having the trial taken away? Hopefully you have ample medication on hand to use as ammunition!
Feel free to ask anything!
