My husband had preliminary test for dorsal column stimulator and found it worked. When he was tohave it surgically put in, they could not do it because they found he needed a defibrillator. they found and fixed two blocked arteries and found he had had a heart attack. No one knows when the attack happened. He has the defibrillator but still is in constant pain. We're trying to find out if anyone has had the dorsal column stimulator or pain pump put in with a defibrillator. We live in the central Jersey area and are willing to travel to other places in New Jersey. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My husband is constantly in pain and he would like to get off pain medication. thank you for your help.
