Inter-Stim Neurstimulator by Medtronic
loveinterstim06 posted:
I suffered from urinary retention for over a yr. and did my research found the Inter-Stim device and the rest is pleasant history. It turned my life around and I have never regretted it. Was a simple proceedure but i realize not everyone will feel that way. I am not a complainer and I made sure I new all the right questions to ask. I have had mine since May of 06'. I hope I never have to be without it. Yes it is true no MRI's but if a serious situation arose where you absolutely needed one the device can be removed until after the MRI. Not a big deal. I have nothing bad to say about it. I was in an accident and three out of the five sacral nerves were damaged and because the Inter-Stim bridges the gap between the sacral never and the brain and bladder I go just like I did prior to the accident. Thank you Medtronic!!!!!
