Spinal cord stimulation
#5
Some people have great results with it. Some do not. That is the purpose of the trial. If there is not a 50 to 65% decrease in the pain. The final implant will not be done.

Now speaking for myself. I have had good results with it. The only down side is that it can not control all the areas of pain. The areas that it does control, well, it works.

Probably the best way to explain how it works is this. Have you ever been electrocuted (shocked either by a battery or AC current)???? If so, you know the tingling feeling that followed. Well, that tingleing feeling is what you are going to feel when you have the SCS. The difference is that you will be able to controll strenght of the feeling as well as the pulse.

The short answere is yes. It works for me. As Manley2 said, there are others here with one. Hopefully they will be alone shortly.
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.
