A bit about myself. I am 36 years old and have had four surgeries: 1: Microdisctomy (L4/L5) 2. Anterior/Posterior interbody fusion with instrumentation. 3. Revised posterior fusion (bone graft did not take with 1st one). 4. Laminectomy with Rhyzolosis. 5. Radiofrequency denervation of nerve roots. 6. Many facet blocks and various lumbar injections.
After all of the above, I am still in severe pain. My PM dr has suggested a trial of the SCS. I am booked in for the 16th Janaury 2013. I am very nervous but am willing to try anything to get my life back. I have three beautiful young children, but it's very frustrating that I can't do the things that I want to do with them as the pain is so bad/
I am keen to hear from anyone who has the procedure.View Thread
Thanks David, I have just completed my SCS trial and am happy to advise that it was a complete success. It gave me a significant amount of relief. I have decided to go ahead with the permanent implant.View Thread
