Hello all,

I am a 58 year old female with 2 lumber spine surgeries and still in cronic pain. I am hoping for some relief, I am thinking about having a spinal cord stimulator implanted and hoping for some feedback from other who have had this done. Pros and cons and hoping the pros outweigh the cons for some relief.



  • Hi Beebop :wave: & welcome to SH :)

    Once you get the feel of things here I am sure you will as many others have find this to be a great place of support & information.

    If I were you I would make a new post (in a new thread) & make the subject line something like "opinions on SCS wanted - new here" or something like that ;)

    There are several people here who have them & a few who had them and no longer do for different reasons. I am sure you will find the info you are looking for.

    I know zip, zero, nada about them myself ;)
