Hello Folks,

I am in the process of getting approved for a SCS trial.
I suffer from both Ortho of the facet joints and DDD. So I have both nerve pains and sensations plus a gnawing feeling in my low back.

I do not see many other options. I have had RFA done twice and it works great for both but wears off and then it is 2 months or more of not being able to function.

My Pain Clinic Dr thinks I am a good candidate, and I am getting a second oppinion from a trusted Ortho Surg.

So I am wondering what you know now that you did not know before your SCS.

Would it have changed your decision?

Also how long were you off work after PERM implants.

Jester in Ja's court :)
