I guess I am going to do Stimulator trial

Hi all! Iamgoing to be trying the spinal cord stimulator sometime in January. The pain doctor thinks it can really help my leg pain. I hope so. I have had burning numbness in my thighs since 1998 but it used to be only when I was standing or walking now it happens when I am sitting too. This stupid pain is really starting to wear me down!! I am also having a similar problem in my neck but the doctor says since that pain is in my neck and not radiating the stimulator won't help it. I have a feeling that I may have to have another cervical fusion to get relief for my neck. I would love to hear from those of you who have the stimulator or have done the trial and how much if any relief did you get. Thanks, Dee
