Advice & Tips: Please do all the research you can before getting this implant. Talk with other patients that have gotten it. Ask plenty of questions. And the #1 tip I could give is don't make the decision to get this implant out of desperation to get away from the pain. If you are questioning your decision and you aren't 100% sure that this implant is for you-DO NOT get it! Do more research. Have ALL your questions answered before you go through with it. I have more problems now than I did before I got the implant. I have numerous side effects that can't be explained. I've been told that it's just a coincidence that I didn't have them before I got the implant. I've lost a lot of sleep bc the muscle spasms in my legs are so bad. My sciatica is worse. The sciatica feels like a firey, red hot poker being put on my right buttock. The muscle over the implant gets so tight and knots up causing severe burning pain.
