Spinal cord stimulator

Paperman replied the topic: Spinal cord stimulator
Ive had an Abbott /St Jude Prodigy devise implanted with 2 leads - 1 is cervical and the other thoracic to cover chronic pain in neck shoulder back arms and legs.
I had the Thoracic lead fail after 5 weeks and now believe the replaced lead has failed after 6 weeks ( i see a senior technician for confirmation 30/1/18.
the system works great in controlling majority of pain and I get off all meds( Pregabalin etc) when its all working.
Has anyone else experienced lead failures?
