When Will The Fun Ever End?
Yesterday, I had surgery to replace the battery to my spinal cord stimulator. Today, I'm sore as hell and can't bend at all. At least the bandages aren't as miserable as last year.
I just had the thing put in exactly a year ago today. The original battery was expected to last a couple of years but it didn't. So now I have an externally rechargeable system. It's a strange concept to me. I charge a charger belt by plugging it in. After it is charged, I unplug it and then wear it around my waist making contact over the site of the implanted battery. Somehow, the thing recharges the battery through the flesh without any physical contact.
It seems every year I become more and more a Borg! I'm not supposed to be sitting in front of a computer today but I can stand so much boredom.
