ONS battery

For those of you who have ONS you will understand when I say I got my ERI message today Sad

This means my Occiptal Nerve Stimulator Battery is coming to the end of its life! Hopefully at least it will last over Christmas.  I have been very blessed with this as it has given me a much better quality of life and it has lasted 4 years!

 

Looking forward to getting a rechargeable Smile

Lol David I wish they did it by wifi at the hospital!! The battery implant I have at the moment will be useless shortly and will need to be surgically removed and replaced by a rechargeable battery. To recharge, as I understand it is with using a belt plugged in for a short while every now and then, which should last a lot longer than 4 years.

I am very fortunate that his has lasted as long as 4 years, I have a lot to be thankful for!
