    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I had this implant 2012, I had no issues with infections, however if does not work for me at all. I still have bladder leaks and I was not told at the time I could never get a MRI on my back. I have had lower back issues for 14 yrs and also have hip trouble. I am considering getting this removed, since this has not helped, I have tried every setting on the device with no luck. If anyone is young really consider the fact that is you have any lower back or hip trouble as your get older you can never have a MRI. When I had a MRI of my brain I had to shut it off. Was told when I needed a MRI on my hips they told me it would cause my bladder great damage.
