Fragile – I’ve hit a bump in the road But I’m sure it’ll all pan out ok. So much for looking after myself and preparing for potential weight gain as I approach my half decade milestone. The weight I’ve lost has potentially caused a shift in the position of my implants. Things are quite bumpy but I’m making plans. Plans to escape and find inspiration in the event I need some adjustment surgery. I’ll keep you guys posted. But for now, here’s a little entertainment… Soula style.

I hope it all works out well in the end. xxx Roxie July 15, 2018 at 9:42 pm - Reply I am VERY interested in your outcome. I have two implants one in my upper left buttock and one in my right since 2015. The leads are positioned by the pudendal nerves instead of the sacral nerves and I have found it helpful. I have bilateral pudendal neuralgia and interstital cystitis. This past year I have lost 25 pounds and recently I have begun experiencing pain over my left implant and it does feel like it moves around a bit. My doctor lives 6 hours away and as you know driving is one of the worse pain triggers so I have only communicated by email with him and not been evaulated in person yet. But he suspects the weight loss has likely caused a revision to be necessary, but doesn’t advise doing anything until I am done losing weight. I am at a healthy weight now, but am waiting to see if my weight levels out before I move forward. It’s so ironic to have gotten this today. You are one of the first people I discovered with PN after I was diagnosed with it and I have been googling this weekend trying to find someone with this weight loss/implant migration issue this weekend and now here you are! I wish it werent so, but please keep us posted on your journey. Soula Mantalvanos July 16, 2018 at 11:32 am - Reply Hi Roxie, The timing! I will certainly keep posting. This is what the site is all about. I’ve lost a couple of kilos only but I am at a very transitional life point so all factors may be contributing. Thanks for sharing your experience too, it really helps! Go for it (just keep it respectful please!)Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
