I am on my last day of my Medronic Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial and have to make a decision if I want to have it permanently implanted. Struggling with decision as I have read so many negative reviews. I think it may be helping me some but that is questionable as I only have stimulation on the left side of my body. When I ask the Medronic rep about it she never gives me an answer just acts like it is normal. I am a risk taker, so I want to give it a try but the complications and failed results so many post are unsettling as I do not want to make my situation worse. My surgeon is reassuring, places stimulators all the time and has been doing it for 18 years with no known malpractice lawsuits. I am having the newest product implanted and am hoping the outcome over the years have improved. I would like to hear about the good, bad and ugly things that have happened to others in my situation. Thank you for your thoughts.
