NEW TO SITE; SEVERE PAIN DUE TO SPINAL CORD DAMAGE

Started by Pam6622 on 02/08/2010 12:29pm

Hello:

I have read some of your e-mails. I am touched and also can relate to many of them.

Had a spinal cord tumor removed in 1988. Things were fine for a while though I had to wear a leg brace on my left foot due to numbness in left foot. Then they really began to deteroriate. I am now barely able to walk and get the needles and pins feeling in my bottom, left leg and right foot. It's horrible.

Anyway, I am now considerating a spinal cord stimulator. Do any of you out there have one? If so, what was the outcome? I'm really interested to know.

Thanks.

Ouch. Sounds painfull. I've not had a sspinal cord stimulator, so can;t be much help. but i noticed you'd not had other replies, adn wondered if you re-posted your question but titled it Spinal Cord Stim question, you might get some responses. Just a thought. I hope you find a good and successful treatment.
