Re: RSD and MUSCLE WASTING! Homie Needs Help!

Sorry to here you are having so many problems.

How long have you had this and where did it start to effect you.

I have read several of your post and noticed that you have 2 SCS a upper and lower. Has the upper SCS worked for you and what % decrease in pain has it helped. Also how long have you had it for. I ask because my pm dr wants to implant a SCS and I am not sold on it as of yet. I still have a severed radial nerve in my right wrist and feel that the SCS will not reduce my nerve pain in my right arm until the nerve has been repaired first. The nerve was severed over 4 years ago and had 2 surgery's to try to repair and regrow 12" back into my hand. I feel the nerve needs to be repaired first so the SCS can help with the pain through out my arm upper back and chest. Any thoughts.
