Hi Kathyy and anyone else that can PLEASE offer some good advice,
I'm hoping to get some information on SCS and see that it has helped you out which is so encouraging for me to hear. Where is your pain located and where was the unit implanted?
I've had chronic neck and shoulder pain since a MVA on 2/06 and have been through every treatment I heard of. I've had 2 discectomies and fusions, several epidurals, hundreds of trigger point injections, botox, years of physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, and probably some more that I can't remember. Nothing has really helped my pain and I'm reduced to taking pain meds daily. They help but I don't want to have to rely on them to function.
My dr. thinks that SCS will help but I can't find info on it that says it's recommended for the neck. All I see is for the lower back. I'm scared and don't want to be anyone's guinea pig:(
I would be grateful for any advice you could give!!
