Harrington rods in 93. Lots of pain now. Good doc near ATL? Is TENS safe?
I am new here. I had surgery for scoliosis in 93, and haven't had many issues at all. Until this past year. Now the pain comes every month or so, and when it does- it's mean. I'm on muscle relaxers and painkillers just to get by. Sometimes the pain is at the top of my rods, other times at the bottom. I also have been experiencing numbness in hands and feet (mostly at night), tingling in my body, and twitching muscles. My doc from Michigan no longer practices. I am in Atlanta now, and have no idea where to go for help. So, I thought I'd reach out.
Also, a friend let me borrow his TENS 3000 unit. I have no idea if that is safe with rods.
Thanks for your thoughts,
