Will continue as I am doing. Utilizing the SCS as I have been esp at bedtime, I turn it on my sleep program and it just feels like a massage to my muscles and over rides the LBP. I will wait to have the plastic shell/liner of my right hip replaced when it is 'cold' weather down here where I live.Prob around Nov, somewhere around there anyhow. I will then have to wait a minimum of 6 months before I will be able to undergo the SCS trial for my LB using subQ leads. So I will continue to take my Percocet TID as needed along w/my Zanaflex at bedtime. I am GLAD tho as I do not have to go back to the pain physician until August! Well that's my update I will for as long as possible continue to ride my little therapy horse, Hershey!

Don't understand the need to wait. Care to share? What does the heat have to do with the hip replacement date?
