I’m sorry to see you didn’t get a response to this, as my doctor would like to put one in me as well. Did you follow through? If so, would you recommend it?

Hi, 62andgoin--thanks for your question about spinal cord stimulation. Like any surgical procedure, it's normal to be scared before having your stimulator implanted. Have you discussed your concerns with your doctor?

We recently updated our SCS resources, and we think you'll find the information beneficial. This is a great place to start to learn more: ( Spinal Cord Stimulation for Chronic Pain: What You Need to Know ).

Keep us posted on how you're doing and how this therapy is working for you. We wish you the very best!
