I was wondering if any of you fellow back/neck pain sufferers have any experience with a neurotransmitter.
I go to my Dr. on Wednesday to see what they decide to do for me.
I have had a laminectomy/decompression at L4-L5 and L5-S1 in 2006. I had an ALIF on my L5-S1 in Dec. 2013. They wanted to do L4-L5 but it was unsafe to do through the front. I have had continued pain in my back and groin and have had 3 epidural injections. I recently had a new myelogram and the PA had to stick me 6 times to get the needle in, due to scar tissue. I have herniated L4/5, L3/4 and have Osteophyte, and facet joint anthropy.
The Dr. said I can do surgery which will be more complicated than the other 2 I've had, or have a neurotransmitter installed in my back in my spine. The surgery would fix the problem and the neurotransmitter is like a tens unit and I'm supposed to have tingling and numbness all the time but eased up pain possibly of 50 percent.
If any of you have any experience with the transmitter please share with me. Thanks
