Had St Jude unit installed 2011. At the most, I have received 20-30% reduction in pain. Seems as though, batteries need recharging more often than before. Used to only need once a week but now twice serves myself/pain better. Also can not lie on my back or front. Can only sleep on my side to incur the least amount of pain. Had St Jude personnel "adjust" my unit but will only do in doctors office with my Pain Management doctor charging $300 for using his office space for 10 minutes. Even had nurse rush in as I was leaving to make me go back into exam room to take my blood pressure. Never saw PM Doctor. What a crock. Anyone with shared experience? Good Luck
