  • Im so sorry, did I do something wrong? I only get to see my pain management doc every few months so I thought it would be ok to ask these questions on here in the meantime and get answers from real-life people that would give me true experiences. I feel like I have offended you in some way and I am truly sorry.

  • Sorry you misunderstood what I was saying. I've read lots of different experiences on how these doctors do the trial procedure. Mine was very anti-climatic. It was done in his procedure room with only a numbing agent administered. Some folks have the procedure done in a operating room. I was only suggesting that you should ask your doctor how he does the procedure.

  • You are correct. It always helps to talk to people who have gone thru the same thing you are. Farther down the menu page you will find a section devoted to spinal cord stimulators. You can ask questions about the stimulator and also read what others have posted on this subject. I am sure it will be a big help to you.
    Good lick.

  • Both companies have good sites with information that may be very helpful to you in describing the process etc. Keep in mind they are there to sell a product, however. There is list of doctors on both sites who perform these surgeries and I would call around and find someone who is really experienced. And make sure your insurance will cover it! Thy are pricey gadgets and you will need Laminectomy to insert the leads and paddles.Hope that helps.
