Neurologist wants to implant a Nerve Root Stimulator... Anyone Familiar???

Hi All... went and saw my Neurologist today for the MRI/Myelogram/CT Scan results... he said that my Myelogram/CT of my lumbar looked fine, but that obviously since I am having so much pain still and the ESI's haven't worked etc.. that I obviously have permenant extensive damage to the S1 nerve... so he suggested the Nerve Root Stimulator Implant... said he would have my Pain Management Doc do a test on the 23rd when I go to see if I get immediate relief from the stimulator, and if so, he (my neuro) would do the surgery to implant the stimulator.... Anyone had experience with this? What are the pro's and con's.... did it work... or not work... what does it intell.... etc etc...... Please any responses would be so greatly appreciated...

Also he referred me to a Plastic Surgeon for consult about a possible breast reduction..... he said that would free up alot of the weight being pulled on my neck and back....

Again any input would be greatly appreciated..... Thanks All..... Take Care.....

Re: Neurologist wants to implant a Nerve Root Stimulator... Anyone Familiar???

April, I am in the Army and they do a lot of those implants and I have never heard anything negitive about it. I know one guy who had to get it becuase of RDS in his foot. I guess that is a common thing to get for that. I know another female who has had positive results from it also. Now exactly what it is or how you operate it I have no idea. From what I understood you have a sort of control that you push when you have the pain. Again I honestly don't know. That was something I was interested in also. Sorry for not much help. Angela.
