I have suffered from a degenerative disc disease in the lower lumbar from L1 to S1 for many years, also facet joint degeneration as well. I couldn't do anything, no walking, standing, housework, gardening, even sitting in the car was painful, had to use a walking stick to get around. I've had de-nervations done, steroidal injections, Fentanyl pain patches, but they don't last. My pain specialist suggested a St Jude's Spinal Cord Stimulation Implant, which I had done in April 2017. I am now 8 months down the track and I can do all of the above once again, within reason and I have my life back now. Hope this information helps others.
