Been reading through your posts on the SCS neurostimulator. This is news to me and I'd like to know more about it. I'm 3 years post op after a lumbar fusion on L4-5, and L5-S1 with instrumentation. I have permanent neuritis and scarring on both my left and right sciatic nerves and struggle with chronic pain which goes through periods of better and worse. Most of my pain is nerve related.
I consider myself blessed compared to what others have endured, and try to keep a positive perspective on life. Can anyone tell me whether or not this sounds like I should talk to someone about SCS? Who would that be? Are there only certain physicians who one should talk to about this?
What is it like to live with the SCS? Do you have electrodes sticking out or something? Can someone point me to some online resources?
Thank you. God bless,
