Event Description
Information was reported that a patient¿s stimulation was on constantly and it was bothering her and making her uncomfortable. Patient requested for a manufacturer representative (rep) to come and shut the implant off. Patient stated she had ¿mental health issues¿. Patient had lost her programmer, but she had no interest in getting a replacement. She wanted the implant turned off and she was going to have it taken out. Patient stated she has an appointment with her doctor on monday. Patient requested the local rep to come and turn her device off. Additional information was reported that the patient still had not had their stimulation turned off and the patient was having a difficult time with depression and anxiety that was exacerbated by pain in her back. The stimulation was making it worse. Additional information received from the healthcare professional (hcp) reported that during a (b)(6) 2010 office visit the patient had low back pain and a myelogram and ct scan showed evidence of l3-l4 disc degeneration. The wound from the recent revision was well healed. On a (b)(6) 2011 office visit the patient had a recurrence of pain radiating from the lower back into the right buttock and was using the implant with some relief after an unrelated surgery. An examination found that there was right sciatic notch tenderness and her wounds from her surgery were well healed. An office visit on (b)(6) 2015 stated that the patient had stopped using her implant three years ago and had right sacroiliac joint block without relief of low back pain down the right lower extremity. A ct scan found postoperative changes from an unrelated fusion and the wound was well healed.

Event Description
Additional information was received from the consumer reporting the patient has memory loss issues; the patient once turned the device off in 2015 which resulted in device eventually dying. On (b)(6) 2015, the patient was taken to the doctor and device was restarted without any issues. After that appointment, the patient had turned the device back off but the exact date was unknown. Sickness and memory loss was not related to the devices. Since the device was turned off, the sickness returned. Two weeks ago, patient was seen by a company representative (rep) and they turned the device back on without any issues. The cause of this event was due to the patient turning the device off. The ins was working fine but the patient keeps turning the device off every now and then; the patient was told not to do that and to leave the device on.
