SCS-- implant for trial was unsucessful, back to impaired

Yesterday the SCS implantation failed because the PM doc said my mother's back was in the worst condition she'd ever seen. Dr. said she had never encountered so many complications, ditto for SCS rep. who was there.

PM wants to consult w/ neurosurgeon about possibility of more invasive implant but she was very distraught after having prayed the device would bring her some pain relief. She's in agony since L5 fusion in Dec. We are about 10+yrs into this battle with her back. Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated.
