I am in treatment for two different ailments and after the epideral injections the Doctor is suggesting spinal stimulator implants. The implant for the lower back and leg pain was given good odds as to how much the implant would help. The implant for my neck and shoulder pain was given a 2% chance of minor improvement and the doctor said the incission for the implant was liely to be more painful than my current pain, though I find this hard to phathom.

Has anyone had a spinal stimultor implanted for pain in the neck and shoulder, and if so how successful has it been?
