Not controlling pain

My husband had spinal cord stimulator put in. It worked very good for 10 months. Having terrible leg, thighs,and feet pain. Has had several adjustments.  Don't know what to do now. Seeing his PM doctor and Medtronic rep this next week.



  • Is the pain in your husband's legs and feet the same pain the device was implanted to treat, or new pain areas? I think following up with an office visit is the best plan for him. It could be an issue with device programming or performance, or it could be a new medical issue.
