Spinal Cord Stimulator

Started by Randy W on 07/28/2013 4:34am

I had a L-5 S-1 fusion at the end of 2012. It relieved my right leg pain. However, a pedicle screw was misplaced and went into the nerve canal. Despite my frantic phone calls describing my pain, the screw wasn't removed for three months. The result is permanent nerve damage and daily pain, only mitigated by heavy narcotics.

I've heard good and really bad things about spinal cord stimulators. Would you mind sharing your stories?

Thanks.
Randy
