My neurosurgeon has suggested a St Jude SCS but he first wants me to have another MRI to make sure there is room in my mid back for it. Did anyone else have to do this? I am a bit fearful of the closed MRIs and the last one they had to stop and do an open because my panic level ...well got ridiculous I must embarrassely admit.
I have such extreme low back/leg pain and reading these forums gives me hope. I have not had any surgeries as they are not sure it will fix the problem and thus want me to try this. I have done the typical...steriod shots, physical therapy and etc. Honestly, I would much rather try this over low back surgery.
Do most people really get great relief from it?
Thank you for responding to my questions in advance.
