Good day all,
Well, I visited my pain doc today and he sent me home with information and a DVD about the ANS stimulator. My question is, is anyone familiar with this product or similar; and how is it working for them?
My pain doc said there is a chance I could reduce the Oxycodone he just prescribed for me with the implanted stimulator. Has anyone experienced this as well? As I loathe being on drugs of any kind, this by itself almost makes me want to have it installed immediately.
Another issue is, with my restolathesis (sp) there is a very good chance in the future I will have a multi-level fusion where the stimulator would be installed. Does anyone have any experience with this?
I will be talking with my surgeon in three weeks to get his input, but in the meantime I am seeking some input from folks who are using the stimulator.
View my history for all the gory details.
