Re: Spinal Cord Stimulator
Yes, I have a very similar situation. I had my stimulator implanted in March of this year. I have a lot of pain at the site of the lead...almost like an electrical shock going through my soft tissue. Before, I had low back pain and leg pain. Now, I have low back, leg and thorasic pain. I've had a lot of reprograming of my SCS, but to no avail. After a lot of agonizing, I'm going to have an L5/S1 fusion to fix the problem rather than mask the pain. My surgeon is going to take out the SCS and as much of the lead as he can.
Sorry you're having a similar experience. It's awful to go through surgery and have it not work.
