I have made the decision to get a SCS. I have already taken the psych eval and I am waiting for the trial. I have been doing my research as everyone has suggested and my PM dr recommends the BS model. From what I have read from all the post on here, the BS seems to be a good choice. During my research, I have only ran across one person who actually has a SCS and he has had very good results. I would like to talk to more ppl who are patients at my PM clinic but due to the HIPPA laws, my dr won't release the names of patients for me to talk to them. Any suggestions? A few questions I have is, which type Dr does the actual procedure? Is it an orthopedic surgeon or a neuro surgeon or does it matter? Assuming the trial is a success and the SCS is implanted, how does that affect one's sex life? I am 48 and still consider myself active in that area. Well when my wife is in the mood. I will keep everyone posted. I have found this forum as well as the others very helpful.
