Question Spinal Cord Stimulator for RSD

Hi! Since I'm new to this board, please bear with me. I'm still learning how to navigate my way around. Anyway, I'm in the process of getting insurance approval for a trial SCS. I'm a little nervous about it, but my doctor feels this is one of the last options. I've already done therapy, water therapy, ganglion stellate blocks, TENS unit, and most of the meds. Recently the pain is so bad that right now I'm not working (standing and walking 80% of the day was killing me). I was just wondering if anyone has had the SCS, and what kind of success or problems you have had. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
