I came across this site while looking for some info on the spinal cord stimulator. I have had 2 back surgeries, L5-S1. I had a fusion with hardware in 2005. I have been dealing with pain since. I hurt more on the left side buttock and leg. It almost never goes away. So frustrating!!! I have been seeing a Pain management Dr. since. I have had every injection you can think of. On Thursday I had the SCS installed temporarily. I cannot see any difference other than this annoying buzzing feeling. I am so let down. I really wanted this to work. On top of that, I am allergic to the tape they taped my back with and it is blistering up and itching. Bad thing is I can't take it off until Monday when I go and see my PM so he can see how the SCS has worked for me. The SCS rep. has called me every day to see how I am doing but seems astounded that I haven't had the results she expected. Has anyone else had this problem or even used the SCS? It would be nice to talk to others who understand where I am coming from with this chronic pain issue.
