Ok I'm asking anyone if they have ever had pain after using a bone stimulator... OK My history I ruptured a disc in my C-5 C-6 2 years ago and I will be coming up on two years in September for the surgery... (ACDF) Now after having a CAT Scan on my neck they found that my c-spine didn't fuse so the surgeon thought it would be a good idea to having me use the bone stimulator.. I have only be using the stinulator for over two weeks but 3 days ago I got the pain in the right side of my neck and tingling in my hands just like when I ruptured the disc the first time... Im really scared I can't go through the pain and heartache that I went through the last time.. I thought I was never going to work again or be without pain and now its creeping back in... HAs anyone else had the same problem...


  • Sometimes the bone stimulators can cause some pain, however you will get used to the side effects. What you don't want is the surgery to repair a non-fusion. I had the same result with mine as well, but the pain did wear off in a few weeks. I wore my stimulator for 4 hours a day for 6 months, although I didn't fuse, it is still worth the try. I did end up having the repair surgery and was much harder to recover from.
