Third spinal cord stimulator. We spent an hour in the OR reprogramming but never were we able to mask the area of pain. Told that my nervous system is wired differently than the average person. Can CRPS/RSD do this? Stimulation is smooth and the brograms are very versatile. But it doesn't help with pain. Once I'm done with post-op meds I'm going to be back right where I started. My doctor won't listen and keeps pushing surgery. I get that there's an opioids epidemic but there are those of us who don't abuse drugs and use as directed to help control our pain. I was on 75MCG per hour. They took me off in 5 weeks. I'm taking Nyucenta but it barely helps at the low dosage I'm on. When I discussed going back onto something that made me functional, he refused. Said he is phasing his patients off meds. So I'm trying to find a new pain clinic which will empathize with my situation.
