Appreciate your inputs on VNS, but would appreciate input how people are paying for it. Medicare, Insurance?

i had the surgery may 5th of this year. Pain was not too bad. My biggest problem was that i just got my voice back after 3 months which was pretty scarey. I have not noticed any change with my depression yet.

I was approved for the surgery after many, many different tries at meds and they did not help my major depression.

I hope this info helps someone.
