Rubybear introducing myself
After registering and posting a reply to someone in the forum, I’m sort of coming in the back door to introduce myself. I actually found your forums while looking for information about Spinal Cord Stimulators. I’ve had mine for 7 years, and I wanted to see if anyone has had the surgery to replace the battery/generator. Didn’t find my answer, but educated myself a whole bunch, anyway! This is a great website.
I guess you could say I’m a bit of a ‘senior’ member, being 58. I’ve had chronic back pain for 33 years, and RSD nerve pain for 16 years, so I guess you could say I’ve been around the block. In addition to finding help for myself, I would love to be able to help others by sharing information about my own conditions & experiences.
Thanks for being here for us,
P.S. My account page says I have one new message, but when I click on it, a page loads that says “You are not authorized to access this page”. I’m sure it’s the welcome message - can you delete it?
