I just received the new spinal cord stimulator that is suppose to mri approved a few days ago.I was the first in the US to receive it, but have had nothing but miserable pain. I have had 7 prior lumbar surgeries, and even with those the pain was nothing like this. The doctor doesn't seem to care about my pain, and I don't know what to do now. I was told that this device would be exactly what I need because with all my problems( degenerative disc, multiple herniations etc.) after I woke up from surgery I had severe weakness in my right leg not able to stand without it buckling. the dr explained it was because of the numbing meds and it would go away in a few hours. well it didnt so I went to ER and was admitted for an mri, but at that time was told the device was "conditionally" approved for mri so theycouldn't do it. the did ct scan and said it was inflammation. 5 days later im still suffering with severe nerve pain. im looking for anyone that can relate or has any advice!!! I spoke with dr office today and they still seem to think it'll go away on it's own, but with my history im not so convinced.
