Hi. I been reading posts on here for years, but never posted anything before.
I'm in bad shape , like most people on here I suppose, in agony, at my last straw. I went to a new PM today, thought I was going for a pain pump consult, didn't qualify. After 4 years of hearing about the stimulator, I trusted this doctor, don't know why..I'm going for it. I looked up the one he want's to use, Boston Science and all I read were horror stories.
Can anyone recommend what is the best one to put in my body? I cannot go though anymore faulty hardware.
I had 3 back surgeries, was 180 fused, Dr went in to fuse the rest of me, found my hardware was defected, causing my brutal pain, then found my nerves were crushed between my L4 L5 because first Dr ( Butcher) didn't fuse me all the way, and now I have permanant nerve damage. I can't do anything. Drive, sit for more than half an hour in a car, chair, anything, no quality of life..I sleep on ice and heat, blah, we all have our stories..sorry..I just want to get this stimulator in me and hope to get some life back..
Thanks and peace
