I'm a new member and have just been told I'm being recommended for spinal cord stimulation. I had one open back surgery 4 years ago. Tat was a success. This year I started having back pain at L 4-L5. Had an epidural sot before surgery. Did nothing.
On 04/06/15 had minimally invasive back surgery on L5. I was told I was 10% that surgery was not successful. Another epidural was given to calm radiaditing leg pain. Unsuccessful. Can hardly walk with hydrocodooe given for pain.
Now there is mention of spinal cord stimulator. I'm scared. I don't what this is and we're still messing with my back.
Any support or information will greatly appreciated.
