I am scheduled for a peripheral stimulator trial for my low back on Friday. I did have the scs about a month ago with no suscess. I have been looking for information on this procedure but have not been having much luck. Some of my questions are..what kind of anestegisia do the use if any ? anything like they did for the scs trial ? Has anyone had good results with these ? Is there much post op pain ? And any other info that would be of help would be appreciated...thank you and may we all have pain free days ahead.


  • so this is only a hunch but it sounds like they are going to move the trial down or they have a new gizmo out...anything is worth a shot, right??? also you might ask by telling them this is new to you and will like more info...
    good luck
