So. I visited my NS for my 9 month followup today. I have ended up with drop foot and severe radiculopathy since my fusion surgery last December. My pain management doctor has told me that SCS is my best route to take. Unfortunately my NS who is probably one of the best in Florida told me today, that with the amount of scar tissue that I have developed sine my surgery in Dec 09, he would not recommend SCS. His concern is that I will develop more scar tissue that will end up disabling me more than I am currently. He stated that he has never seen the amount of scar tissue develop in 6 months that I have in 30 years of practice. He told me he has been always been against a diagnosis of arachnoiditis but he would document that is what I have. So, now I am in a catch 22, my PM wants SCS, but NS says now way, too risky from what he has seen develop, but still my decision. Catch 22, right?? Thanks for any input, I guess the decision is mine.
