Does Spinal Cord Stimulation work?
#25
I think I would go through the trial period. That way you would know for sure if it is going to work or not. The trial period last a week and it is all external except for the ends of the leads. If there is not atleast a 50-60% improvement in the pain level, the dr. will not request a permanent one.

Just my thoughts and experience.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.
