SCS failed!!!!

please help my trial SCS only helped about 30% of the pain. Not enough to justify implantation. I have severe mid back pain when walking or standing. I had a Lumbar instrumented fusion 18 months ago. I have DDD at L3-L4. Disc herinatiion at T12-L1. Herniated disc at C7-1. Stenosis at L3-L4.  And Lumbar Spondylosis. The pain is debilitating at times and I can't walk a block without having to sit. It feels like a major tightening in my mid back and feels like I have knives stabbing me. Does anyone else suffer from this type of pain?


  • I had the same thing happen when my device was on. Turned out 2 of the leads had a short in them. So they had to reprogram it to not use them.  But shortly after that it still caused my pain and now I can't use it at all. So basically after 3 months the ads stopped working and I was in pain. Now they won t do a revision surgery to replace the leads to fix it so I can use it. I added they are removing the whole scs. Apparently my insurance didn't pay as much as rhe y said they would. Now personally I don't see what that has to do with me!!! This product was faulty!!!! It should be fixed  period!!!!! What a crappy company I would have never done this had I known I would be treated like this!!!all they care about is getting paid. Their product is crap and they don't care. Once they  implant it they don't care about  you
