I am considering SCS due to scar tissue around my S-1 nerve root (back surg 4/02 at L5/S1) I have been in pain for 6 years and have tried a bucket full of meds with no help. I have had a Bier block(danger, danger, danger) and more recently an epidural injection and nothing will even touch the pain. My PM doctor (2nd one) is now recommending SCS and my neurologist (I also have MS) agrees that I should try it. I have been reading so much lately that I think that my brain is dead #o but I really want to try to make a well-informed decision about this. At this point I think that I will probably go for it but the logistics have to be worked out. All of the restrictions during the recovery time will be difficult but the worst is the "no driving" part since I have a 12 year old. I would appreciate input to help me with my decision.
