Just saying Hi.

I'm in a lot of pain, so I don't post that often. I do appreciate all the information I have found on this Community site. I will be going in tomorrow for my SCS trial.

I hope everyone will have a pain free day.


  • Welcome to Spine-health, Oriah. Sorry to hear about your pain but am glad that this site has been able to help you somewhat.

    All the best with your SCS trial.

    Take care... Bruce
    Keep positive!

  • Thank you Bruce,

    I read your story, you are an inspiration.

    I'm taking it easy today, but I am looking forward to my SCS trial. I'm very lucky to have a wonderful PM doc, he's given me a lot of attention and although we've tried many different options, he's not given up on me. I won't know if SCS is the right thing for me unless I try it. :)

  • :) hi and welcome to the new forum! we are still here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. i hope your trial goes well! looking at a new method for pain relief can be so exciting! glad you made it over and have found SH to be helpful in your life. good luck on your trial! see you around the forum! Jenny :)
  • welcome to spine-health....
  • Hello and welcome to the forum... ">image I hope you are able to find answers to your questions from the very knowledgeable and compassionate people on this forum!

    Good luck with your trial stimulator tomorrow. Get some rest and don't over do it after getting it implanted.
  • Sorry to hear your in so much pain~

  • So sorry to see what you have been through. The good news is that maybe relief is just a day away. Please keep us posted on your progress.
  • There have been several people lately who have had the trial stim done, and the permanent stim followed very shortly. So far, results have been amazing, so I hope you're another one of the lucky ones to get relief!!

    Good luck, and let us know how you make out!

  • Tracy isn't that just the greatest thing to see happening! If others get as much relief from theirs as I do mine, then there really is hope for others suffering chronic pain.

    Good luck with your trial. And dig your avatar.
