My wife had a spinal stimulator put in about 10 days ago but they put in the wrong device.
The trial involved a two lead device, however all of her physicians agreed that she needed the five lead "penta" device because it would better address her multiple areas of back, neck and arm pain. I attended all of her appointments and clearly recall the surgeon drawing the five lead device on a sheet of paper.
After my wife recovered from the anesthetic she realized that the wrong device had been put in. She is still in severe pain and will now need a second operation to take the current device out and put the penta device in.
We have a meeting this Monday with all the parties and need quick advice.
I am an attorney (former federal prosecutor) and my wife is an RN.
