: : Has anyone out there ever had a bone growth stimulator put in their back either during a fusion or afterwards? If so, any information you have on it would be a blessing. Thank you!

: I had a bone growth stimulator that I had to wear (it look like a really big belt or back support).Don't know if it even really worked. but, i'll tell you that some people told me that it was just another way of some company making money.

I have recently undergone anterior/posterior fusion with rods,pins and a plate placed in my spine at L2-3-4 and they also placed a bone stimulator in that area. My doctor told me that it helps the fusion set better. I dont feel it at all and Ive seen in in my recent x-rays. It is very small. Thats all I know about it. Take Care, Connie
