I'm awaiting surgery for my lower back for an injury that happened when I broke my back my surgery date is going to be set on Friday or the following Monday. I've been living with chronic pain for more then two years . I just want a way away from all these pills !! There going to be removing a piece of my spine and putting in a small box or stimulator, in my left flank their going to put a battery pack . Haha I'll be living via remote control. I'm trying so hard to be optimistic.I have been thru the trial and it was mostly a successes it doesn't take away all the pain but it helps . It would be great to meet some ppl who have this although it is very new I don't know if it's even left New York yet. I've had 25 spinal injections none of them worked, I also had 8 nerve blocks those didn't work either this is last ditch.
