I hate to be redundant but can anyone relate to my post on finding that the metal (Anchor I suppose) was left in after scs removal and is causing terrible radiating thoracic pain? I wonder if it can be removed? I am about crazy with this.  It comes and goes. But is getting worse. Found out I have herniated dusk in lumbar region and they will remove my pain pump during surgery to fix that but what can be done for the thoracic scar site? I read paddles may be "scarred in"  no breakthrough meds living in Tylenol and voltaren gel HELP! Thank you
