I am getting my psych eval next week to go forward with a spinal cord stimulator. I asked my pain doc if the spinal cord stimulator didn't work, would the next step be a pain pump. He said, and I quote, "you might be able to get a doctor to implant it here in Georgia, but you won't get any doctor to manage it, including me." Wow, that makes me really determined to give the spinal cord stimulator as much of a chance as possible.

I wonder, is this attitude toward pain pumps unique to Georgia? I know there are several "spiney" members who use them. Anyway, I'll go for the scs test and see what happens!
