Went to see my PCP today, after going over the MRI results I was told that I have to go back to the Pain Clinic and have the SCS done. That really isn't what I wanted to hear!
I have a terrible feeling about this SCS. I have never done well with a TENS and am worried that this will not work either. I have agreed to go and give it a honest try. I like the doctor at the clinic and I trust him. He told me he was running out of options with me and the SCS is one of my last hopes. And if it doesn't work what then?
I dunno what to think anymore, all I want is to have a somewhat decent Quality of Life so that I can really enjoy being a grandma to Madi. I am scared of the SCS, but then again I am scared of them operating on my back ever again as well.
The MRI shows a massive amount of scar tissue with nerves entwined within the scaring, bone spurs (3) and a bulging disc pressing on the L5 S1 disc. Other test confirmed the CES also being a result of the L5 S1 problems. More bone growth on the right side of the spine at the L3 - S1.
So how was your day?
