hi all,  has anyone had this spinal cord system implanted? I am looking for any information about it, good or bad. I have been in constant chronic pain in my lower left quarter of my body since June 2012. I have had many procedures, operations etc  One of the treatments I had back in December 2016 was Botox into the piriformis which unfortunately made my pain worse than ever and I have never recovered. (I would just like to say oh also, that I had one of these injections into the piriformis before with some success but this 2nd one unfortunately left me in more severe pain than I already had))  I have to spend the majority of my time lying flat on a bed with very limited ability to function as a normal human being.  My medications are not working as well as they used to and as a last resort to get some help to manage my pain is spinal cord stimulation.  I am under an excellent pain management team at Bristol hospital, UK and this procedure is imminent and needless to say I am feeling rather anxious  despite being generally a very positive person. I would really like to hear from anyone who could let me know Any information at all.
