Spinal Cord Stimulator Experience?
After failed lumbar surgery and a series of ineffective post-op epidurals, my pain level is high enough to require daily narcotic medication. As you all understand, it has effected every aspect of my life.
Has anyone had an experience with Spincal Cord Stimulators? (SCS) My surgeon told me he has only seen 2 or 3 cases like mine out of a thousand in which the pain increases dramatically after surgery. He says further surgery will not help as the nerve root at l-5 S-1 is so damaged. So the SCS seems to be my only option.
