I had my S.C.S. implanted in 06. And even after countless adjustments the techs could never get it to work right. It wouldn't go up my spine far enough, and it just gave too much unwanted stimulation in areas where I didn't want it. X( But it did help out first thing in the morning while waiting for the pain meds to kick in.
My surgeon wanted to take it out. But it was just to painful and expensive to give up on. I always figured that they would come out with better leads or something.
On 11-29-11 I had a 2 level fusion and a 4 level Decompression and Laminectomy. And I don't know what happened but every since that surgery my S.C.S. Is working much better. =D> So I'm really happy with my choice to not let him take it out. It still isn't perfect but it's much better!
