I have had 9 lowback surgeries and 3 neck surgeries the most erecent one 1 month ago. Two weeks ago I was in pain from my neck down to my and down the right leg. My doctor recomended oxycodone soma and a TENS unite. I was skeptical about the TENS but I must say I don;t think I would be walking or even getting out of bed if it weren't for the tens unite it helps with the pain I don't feel it as intense as it was and I am feeling better. The pain does come back without it I have the unite for another 6 weeks ,so I don't know what will happen when I don't have it anymore. I am hypothyroid, fibromyalgia, and have had a total of 27 surgeries total. I don't know if this will help you but anything is possible to help.View Thread
