I had a medtronic trial in 2008. I didn't feel it was taking my pain away. seemed they could not get it low enough in the back for me. So I am thinking of trying the stimulator again.
I tried the first one after my first back surgery. Just had my 4th back surgery last Oct.and the pain has has been unbearable in the back and left leg. In 2012 I also had neck surgery. I would not let them fuse it just from the experience of the fusion in my back. I use to be so active, and now I just want to sit. because I know if i do anything I pay the price later.
I see where Medtronic has one that is mri compatable. But I am looking for one that will do the job for me . Are the some to look out for? are there some that are much better than the rest? Has anyone tried a couple different brands? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks whizzer
