InterStim Adjustment: During the trial phase of interstim, some adjustments may be necessary. It is possible for the lead to move a little bit, which can alter the effectiveness of the nerve stimulation. You should call the device rep and ask them to help you adjust which position on the lead is stimulated and/or change the stim amplitude.
