Hello everyone,

Been a while since I been hear....a brief history former spine surgery patient, Staph Infection, meningitis, Fusion's etc...My last Fusion was about 4 yrs ago...the First 11 months totally pain free...Then the pain came deep pressure in legs, back, rectum etc...sitting, standing and lying down make it so much worse!!!! I believe it's the hardware!!!!

I went through 2 cycles of epidural treatments total of 6... Make a long story short my pain Dr wants to discuss Spinal Cord Stimulator.... Trying to see if anyone received pain relief from this??? So nervous about it. Seeing that I had a history of staph in the spine ect!!!!

Any advice or info would be great!
