I just finished up a series of esi injections for a problem with my C6/7 disc. I have a slight bulge that bearly presses on the nerve and a bone spur that is distoring the
nerve as it exits. Plus the channel is narrow. (Stenosis) Pain is right neck, shoulder arm and BOTH hands mimic the same pain. During the day I can can get by with a couple of hydro's but laying down at night is when it really comes on.
My PM doctor gave me a DVD about SCS
and said that I would be a good candidate. I watched the
DVD and did some research and was wondering if
Do most go with the SCS after surgery? The thought of
having a device attached to me really scares the out of me
and with 80% chance of up to 50% pain relief doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
