Stimulator Question

This may be a weird question but if the stim is implanted and prior to the implant you had lumbar problems what would happen if you developed cervical problems? Would they have to go in and put in more leads to cover the cervical area?

Note to Shawley: Because I know you will answer this, I love the tens unit. Does the stim work similar to the tens unit. If so, I am going to consider the stim. I am able to do more with the tens then prior to the tens.

Re: Stimulator Question

I'm hurt you didn't ask me first . Just kidding , yes they can add leads thats whats so great about this .. And Praise the LORD this tens unit is working for you because the Implant is much stronger and covers the pain 100% better .. Go for it Pepper you won't be disapointed This is a great sign that your getting relief from the Tens unit .

Let me know what your Dr. says.. I'm so happy for you ..
