No SCS for me

Went through the scs trial & its not for me. Met with the rep who reprogrammed it several times & they never could get my low back covered. They were able to get my left foot but in order for it to help I had to crank it up so high that it was very uncomfortable. We are going to try physcial therapy again & if that does not help then the only thing left is the pain pump.

Funny things is that I have been able to cut my daily pain meds in half & I am not hurting that bad as of yet. I have told myself that I am determined to make this work without a pain pump. I am going to lose about 15lbs & go to PT every day & work through the pain. I kinda wonder if some of this pain I have is from basicaly sitting or laying everyday all day in a lazyboy for the last 13 months.?? I am also going to see a chiropractor & see what we can do.

Good luck to everyone out there with there pain,
