I just got a spinal cord stimulator implanted a week ago. Now that the swelling has gone down I can totally feel all of the wire snaking down my back and the flashcard-sized battery pack right under my skin. It's not visible and doesn't really stick out that much... but I can definitely feel it with my fingers. At first it was kind of cool and fascinating, but now I am getting a little annoyed. I am really afraid this will become like a sore in your mouth you can't stop touching with your tongue.
If anybody else out there has had an implant that you can feel under the skin, will you please tell me about your experience? Does that annoying aspect of it wear off eventually or will it drive me crazy? It feels so weird having a new body part. :/
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers!
