I had a spinal cord stimulator placed in my flank area of my back for my chronic cervical neck/shoulder pain in April 2013. I do not use it. Somehow the leads moved and it does not cover the area of pain. I have heard that the longer the leads stay in your spinal cord, the harder and more dangerous it is to remove it. I want everything out. But I do not want to cause more pain to my body. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? Is there a GOOD doctor in the Kansas City area that will do it? I do not want to go through the original surgeon that placed the leads. Thanks in advance for any advice.
