Dear Jonathon, Had spinal fusion in 2007..fused L2-S1..still having pain..fell of ladder and fractured T-12..another surgery and fused L10 & L11 and T12. Still have pain..but poor posture is my biggest problem. I walk like I am a 100 years old..hunched over...my shoulders rounded and I am only 58..now a widow and who wants to go out with someone like me. I look great from the front but horrible from the side. I too had a stimulator. It worked for a while and then when my husband was sick I let the battery go dead. Not sure if I want to have another one. Have not used the tens in a while. Using a shoulder brace that does not help much and thinking of using back brace too. Working retail and on feet alot...I sympathize wish I could help any ideas for me????View Thread
