Re: 4 level lumbar fusion & reconstr-Failure

Hi- my neurostimulator is not a pump. It basically works by overriding the pain signals from my back. The device emits electrical impulses which reach my brain before the pain impulses and therefore the pain is dulled. It works very well. I took narcotics for years and went through countless injections. Finally after 13 years, my doctor got approval for the implant. I have tapered down more than 75% on the medications and I feel human again.
I hope you feel better soon and I wish you well, always. Bea
