Hello my friends,
I haven't been on here for awhile.....hope you're doing well.
I know this Q has probably been addressed several times, so forgive me, but I'm on my way to work and don't have time to do a forum search.....
I know we can't get MRI's if we have an SCS.
BUT is it ok to get CT scan?
I have Dr appt coming up and want to see if he will order a CAT scan of my lumbar (before my insurance runs out at the end of the year).....
I'm having alot of lower back pain issues (never had them prior to SCS) and surgeon who implanted my Lumbar SCS commented "you've got a slight stenosis".....
Hopefully he can order the CAT so we can see what's going on with the lower back issues and perhaps rule out lead migration.
Other than that, my SCS is doing wonders for the Neuropathy/RSD in both legs. I'd say it's covering about 80% of the burning pain. I still need BT meds tho, but the SCS has really done wonders.
Hugs to all,
