Battery replacement

Hi everyone,

I am new to the group. I live in Louisiana and I was wondering if anyone here has ever had to replace the battery on their spinal cord stimulator?

I had it put in, in 2011 and am now having issues with it keeping a charge.

I was just wondering if anyone knows about how much that runs. I will be responsible for payment because it has reached its life expectancy.  It is not due to a defect or anything like that. I do not have insurance to cover it and need to know what to expect.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

  • I see in your profile you’ve had three spinal surgeries due to a work injury. Will worker’s comp cover the cost of a new one? I would explode that option if it was me especially since you said you don’t have insurance.
