Anyone have an SCS implant

Pugger, several people in my pain management group have them and the effectiveness of them varied from person to person and relief also depends on where in the spine it's implanted at. I would check out your pain management team office and ask patients that have had them implanted how they're doing. I'd also go into Boston Scientific's website because they have made huge strides in trying to make them better. That being said, they can't guarantee success unfortunately. It may be the miracle you're looking for or it could not work at all. Good luck with your research.

I do not have one but one doctor mentioned a possibility of getting one. During an EMG-nerve conduction study the neurologist advised me not to get it done. He said more people here have problems than those that don't. I really didn't want one though so I'm going to say no when I see the other doc again. Hugs love and prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸
