Can anyone please point me in the direction of information online regarding the safety of a spinal cord stimulatory and pregnancy? I have some questions and cannot seem to find any real information at all. This is getting very frustrating.
I've very nervous as I've just found out I am expecting. I have scheduled my first appointment for a sonogram in a week and a couple days. I am concerned about an implanted device in my back. I have a spinal cord stimulator and wondered if anyone else was in my position. What little information I've found on it is somewhat frightening. I already know I will need to schedule a c-section for other reasons but will the stimulator interfere with ultrasounds and the development of my baby?View Thread
