Spinal cord stimulation implants

Started by tammym241 on 01/15/2014 10:09pm

I currently have a nerve stimulator implanted in my neck at C3-4 due to nerve damage post a dura leak. I am fused at C 3-4-5-6-7 and have had the stimulator now for a year and a half. I cannot tolerate pain medicine except for Ultram and Flexeril, so the stimulator was my only option. It gives me about 60% relief but I do still take my meds when needed. How many other people out there have a stimulator implant and how effective is it for you?

One day at a time,

Tammy Morris
