Well, I think after the research and reading on this site that the scs is not going to be for me, If I choose sometghing, it will be a dilaudid pain pump. My condition has worsened so much and the intractable pain is so horrible! I have herniated and bulging disk in cervical and upper thoracic, and as far as I know the pain in the lumbar is l5/s1...but it's a big herniation and involves my right leg, sometime my left as well. I got my MRE results out last night b/c I had forgotten all that was involved. Lately my cerviacl area has bedn flaired up quite worse lately....It's so hard to be a spiney [cybef hugz needed right now]...Anyw, thank you for all the suppor you all have given me . aI will keep following those of you going that get your triald and implants...all this info helpfull to me! thanks sincerly for everything!!!
