Every 6 months or as needed.  5 times total since surgery.  Only 2 different settings needed since surgery.  One programming I just couldn't turn it down low enough to stop SID's (stimulation induced dyskinesias).  So only took about 5 minutes yo reduce my lower limit on my amps.  Last appointment no changes needed.  

My next appointment will be my 1 year follow up where they videotape again on/off meds. Standard practice.  Since I am off all meds, will just turn the DBS off.
