Thanks for your very detailed sharing. I do hope your pain abates and that you heal quickly and all goes smoothly from here on in.

The pain you are experiencing is again a reminder which I would like to share with the readership. Since everyone is unique the experiences encountered will also be unique from individual to individual. My spouse has received two implants to date, one as an initial study subject back in December of 1999 and a replacement of the pulse generator in January 2005 as part of EOS (End of Service). As part of the study protocol she was required to stay overnight in the hospital but upon leaving the next day she took nothing more than Tylenol and her surgical recovery was uneventful. The replacement surgery only required the one incision utilizing local anesthetic as opposed to the two incisions during the initial implanting and anesthesia and she was in and out of the hospital the same day and we were out to dinner and a movie that evening.

I am aware of individuals who have had a rough go from the surgery so the important point to remember is that individuals respond differently to medications and so too will they respond differently to surgery.

Once again, I do hope all goes well and that this venture with VNS Therapy brings you the wellness you seek.
