Once you knows a SCS is appropriate (after my SJM trial ended today I realise this is going to be a viable solution for me) some decisions need to be made about a permanent implant. From people's personal experience, (and of course being a CP sufferer for over 15 years I know ANYTHING to relieve the pain is a MIRACLE) what consensus do those who have permanent implants have?

I see the Nevro has to be charged daily, but no paresthesia -
SJM has paresthesia when 'awkwardly' moving otherwise burst delivery is sensation free, but 5-7 day charging cycle -
Medtronics I believe is only tonic so paresthesia is the norm.....

Any thoughts?
