MEDTRONIC PAIN STIMULATOR
Good Morning, I am currently undergoing the process of receiving a medtronic spinal stimulator. My concern is I have multiple conditions, that when not under control, can cause devasting conditions and possible loss of my job.
i have done research on the web and there is a lot of pages talking about leads breaking and faulty stimulators, most were posted in 2007. My question is does anyone know if these issue have been resolved? Is this a good way to control my pain?
I have atril fib, tachacardia, high blood pressure, fibromyaliga, a three tier fusion in my neck, herniations in my neck not able to be taken care of and herniation in my lower back. I also have hashimoto thyroid, several GI issues and the list goes on.
Am I asking for trouble?
