My doctor is suggesting a get a neurostimulator put in to help with my pain. I have L3, 4, 5 and S1 disc bulges with left side nerve pain. Doc says the stimulator will buy me about 5 years before i need to get surgery there. I've had an anterieor discectomy with fusion at C3 - 7 with hardware implants on 3/12/12. It helped insofar as the impingements are healed and i can walk again but still have severe hand pain and a lot of neck pain. I had a nerve block done in October 2013 and it really has helped with the neck pain but nothing seems to help the hand pain. Anyway back to my question...anyone? Neurostimulators any suggestions? Or experiences you can share with me please.
