I had a spinal cord stimulator implanted two weeks ago and, unfortunately, it has brought me no relief so far. The Medtronic rep told me I have to wait an additional four weeks so they can adjust where the electrical impulses are going. That would be because the scar tissue over the incision has to heal. I am totally depressed about this and was wondering if anybody else has had this problem. Please let me know. I have pretty much everything wrong with my lower back that could be wrong. No doctor wants to attempt surgery and my worst pain is from the buttocks down my legs. It is very painful to stand up straight, although I try very hard to do so. Any elp would be very much appreciated. Welcome to Spine-Health
