I am due to have spinal cord stimulation trail in three weeks time as i suffer from chronic pain in my right hip following over thirty operation since the age of eighteen months.

I think i must be the worlds worst patient as every time i have an operation or procedure i get very anxious and stressed.
My chronic pain is making life very difficult at the moment and sleep is nonexistent.

Could someone who has had the procedure in the UK let me know what the trial is like and how they managed in theatre?

Thanks in advance

  • Sorry for the delay in replying. I didn't go ahead as I was referred for a nerve decompression operation on Tuesday. If the is not successful I may have to go ahead with the trial
