I've been thru everything for this unbearable pain. Doctor (EDITED TO REMOVE FACILITY NAME) wants to do spinal cord stimulator. I can't find anyone who has had the implant for this reason. Has anyone here had this done for tigeminal pain & if so how did it go for you & how are or were your results?

Thanks any help is appreciated.

    Hi Ann,
    Yes, I have heard of them being done for TN, but I believe that it is rather uncommon, at least on this forum. I do recall someone that I knew having it done and getting very good results. Usually, there is a trial period done first, to make sure that implanting the scs is going to relieve at least 50% of your pain. Otherwise it is considered to be a failure and should not be implanted. You can read at the top of the forum, there are several threads that have tons of imformation regarding the trials, and implant information .
