Re: Electrical bone growth stimulators ~
My husband is currently using one. He had surgery in Oct. Like Bob, he sleeps with it. They have not made one for the neck yet, so they gave him a lumbar one and he lays his neck on it, and the next thing that you know, sleep.
His cost $5000 but was covered by WC. It is programmed to run thirty minutes each day. A beep goes off when it is done. A smiley face appears when it is over to remind you that you have already done it that day. It is only programmed for three months time. (not sure about all of them) Once it is done, it is done. Seems like a lot of money for three month's time.
When he started it, he was already fusing. I am hoping that he is fused by time it is done.
