I'm a newly informed member of the failed fusion club and have been told my options are to have a complete redo of the fusion (new hardware/bmp)with about a 50% chance that it might take this time or try an SCS. Well here I sit (not for long as it kills me to sit here at the computer) ready to face reality. My PM doctor does not do the implant so I have to wait for a referal. May I ask how long from the time you decided to go for the implant until you had the Evaluation/trial and then the permanent SCS? I have been in pain mode for about 3 years.
Is the permanent SCS a full blown surgery or is it performed minimally invasive?
