Re: Neurostimulation

I haven't been this forum in a while, but I finally decided to try some alternate solutions to artificial neuro-stimulation(permanent n-stim impantation). I've just finished 4 weekly sessions of acupuncture, and got some, but not enough relief for my back pain. It has helped somewhat, but I still can't walk a fair distance without pain. It's better when I wake up, from an 8/9 pain level to 5/7 level. I do take hydrocodon ace-twice a day and a prescription for inflammation of the legs. The big test will be tomorrow when I will see a different neuro-surgeon for a second opinion. We'll see what happens then. Bill Murray.
