Re: Removal of Spinal Cord Stimulator.

All people are different, in my case it never worked right from the very beginning and I have suffered alot of pain in the back of my neck for 2 1/2 years since the implant. At times I can hardly stand the pain it brings me, it feels that my head weights to much for my shoulders. Before surgery I never had neck and shoulder pain. I dont know about removing it how that will help with neck and shoulder pain because they will be reopening the same wound. Well guys wish me luck my surgery is April 14, Pray I have no pain in my neck and shoulders when this is all done. I will still have my RSD in my hand and wrist, but with pain meds it helps alittle. If anyone has had the SCS removed I would love to hear from you. Thanks
