I've been living with chronic lower back pain for 6 years this month. My Dr. tell's me there that surgery is not an option for me. DDS and disc problems at 4 levels. I saw some infromation on SCS at my Dr's.After a discuss with my Dr. he reccommened that we look into SCS.

Standing ,walking laying down, and sleeping all cause me increased back pain.as well as to much activity.No one knows what chronic back pain is like, unless you experience it firat hand. I guess I'm looking for feedback on the SCS ?

Do all the reading on this site ask alot of questions, The SCS gave me 3 of the best days I'd had in three years, I alos went from 4-5 hydrocodone a day to 2 a day, and thats because, ID been on them for 2 years and it will take a while to ween off them.
