Typical Questions and Answers on Spinal Cord Stimulation



  • I know they said I would need to recharge it for about 4 hours every two weeks, :? I didnt think to ask how its charged, cant it be done while sleeping, watching tv, is there a belt that you wear so the remote and stem touch? since I wear low rider jeans then NS said he would place it in my lower right back, and I also told him I sleep on my left side, Tues nov 23 is the BIG day. Thanks Rose

  • I've had 5 surgeries within the last 5 years due to falling down a flight of stairs. I moved out of state and got all new doctors. My current neurosurgeon wants me to have spinal cord stimulation. My new pain management doctor wants me to get injections, even though I've had injections in the past and they didn't help. My sister's friend had spinal cord stimulation. The trial was encouraging, but about a month after having the implant, they removed it because it wasn't helping with the pain. I was hoping that my neurosurgeon would at least do an MRI to see what was going on before he decided anything, but he said that he didn't need to see it. I take a lot of pain meds and have been almost bedridden for the last 5 years. I would appreciate any advice or information. Thanks.
