Nevro stopped working

I had the Nevro device implanted 1 year ago. It gave me my life back. I started working again and was extremely happy with 80% pain relief. Then about 6 months ago, it stopped working. Have been reprogrammed 4 times with no improvement. Nevro rep and pain doc don't seem to have answer for me. I still get about 20% relief, so I don't want it removed and am thankful for the awesome 6 months it gave me, but wish there was an answer to get it working again.

  • An xray shows they have not. I have also been reprogrammed 4 times to address a possible  movement.

    Since we last heard from you, they still do not have it working?

  • I have turned my device off and it feels no different than when it is on.  Having the device reprogrammed 4 times means that I have tried 3 programs each time. So after 12 different electrode settings at 4 different levels for each one and nothing works, I  have given up on Nevro for the time being. I am not a person who gives up easily but there comes a time when I  have to admit defeat.

    I know you will have to have this one removed since it is not working. But have you thought about having a different brand used?
    Please don't let yourself be defeated because you did not cause this.
    Take care and keep us posted.
