I have been fused from my L-2 to my S-1 now the center of my back is in sever pain and in my right hand my litle finger and the one beside it are going numb.I had a spinal cord stimulater implanted in nov of 08 but it only helps a litle with my righ leg. does anyone have any symsptoms like this with their fingers going numb andif so what is causing it.

thanks doug



  • maybe the SCS electrods are is in the wrong position because the fusion should not have anything to do with your hand
    go see your doctor again .my mid back aches like hell too i have had 3 levels operated on i have hand problems but i also have TOS ..
