Hi everyone.New member and glad to have found an active group. Think it will be good foe me. I'll intro. myself in futuire posts as I do have a relatively urgent need - to find links to scientific, peer reviewed studies re: effectiveness of Spinal Cord Stimulation devices, especially high frequency ones. My primary medical issue is chronic low back pain (with a recent recurrent disc protrusion at 4/5) but any articles re: chronic pain and SCS devices would be helpful. [edit] Thanks.

  • Hello ...I am one who has had the Stimulator Implant since 2011...I consider it my lifeline...before I had the implant put into place I spent 8 almost 9 months in bed  due to fail back surgery syndrom, nerve damage, and scar tissue...before I had this put into place they do a trial run of it for a week to see if it helps with the pain you are having...feel free to ask any questions on what my experiences are with having on and I will answer as best as possible.
