Well, I'm going to bite the bullet and go ahead with this treatment. The trial was somewhat successful, not the be all end all to my pain that I had hoped for....but it did seem to help. Reading some of the posts here refer to using the SCS as a tool rather than a cure. I'm trying to think that way. Frankly, I'm just not looking forward to another surgery to my already sensitive and beat up spine. What was recovery like for you guys? They are not using the paddle style leads, so hopefully the recovery won't be too bad. Any advice???
