Epilepsy and TENS units
My husband has had epilepsy since age 27; newly diagnosed with early stages of parkinson's. (he is now 57). And, just learned e needs a hip replacement.  Would like to use a TENS unit to manage pain in hip/leg until his surgery in May '11, but all indications caution it's use in persons with seizure disorders.   What is your experience with this in your patients, especially since it will be used in the hip/leg area, not near the neck/head?

Thanks in advance for your responses!
