Ain't life grand?

I’ve been to the doctor's office and despite many attempts, the implanted spinal cord stimulator didn’t work. Apparently, the electrode, the ‘paddle’ lead is in the wrong position. It seems to have slipped very slightly down and a little to the left of where it’s supposed to be; sitting directly underneath vertebrae T-9. Now what? More x-rays, of that I’m sure. Then it will certainly require another trip to the operating room. Four back surgeries in 2 years; four! And my back will soon look like a graphic representation of the Los Angeles freeway system.
