Hello fellow SCS users...I was curious how long people have waited until they were willing to try/or get perm placement of the SCS. I ask because it took a long time for me to accept that I couldn't be fixed & that the SCS was it. In retrospect I wish I would have done it way sooner and not suffered as long as I did!!
I had surgery in Sept '07 then a couple screws removed in April '08 I had other treatments like epidural which was caudal and that was god aweful if I ever need one of those again I'll be needing some sedation medicine! Anyway I had the SCS placed Dec '08 So for me a little over a year!!! There was scar tissue w/permanant nerve damage and nothing will help that....
I wish everyone had the opportunity to at least try it! I'm very grateful for mine!
Thanks in advance for posting on this survey
