Appreciate having the ability to post this. I. Am a 50 year old male with 15 spinal surgeries to date. Having a trial Medtronic installed Monday at the VA. Am looking forward to it although skeptical for I've tried many things with ought resolve. I am open minded and will be nice for some of the pain to be masked so looking forward to it. Think it comes down to that or a pump.... Appreciate any advice on the dos and fonts as well as questions to ask.
