Hi, I'm not in any pain but my partner is, she has a collapsed disk that is pressing on her sciatica nerve and she is awaiting a Spinal Cord Stimulation implant that is due in a week or so. I have been reading a lot of the posts and now may have a few questions so I hope you guys don't mind answering them if I cant find them already asked elsewhere on the site.


  • Welcome to the site! I have found that I have gotten many of my questions answered simply by doing a search on the site. This site is very informative. Just remember the best place to get questions answered is always at your doctor's office.

  • Welsome:) I have only been a member for 6 weeks and this site has been invaluable to me. I think it is awesome that you are involved in your partners pain issues. It is so important to have the encouragement there. Please feel free to PM me anytime you want to talk. I hope you both find the help needed and that the SCS helps.
