    Question Adult tethered spinal cord

    I have experienced 4 de-tethering of the spinal cord over a period of 20 years. Recently I attempted two failed spinal cord stimulator implants. Both times the lead wire failed/broke/moved and I have a dead generator and wire in my back. The doctor is now suggesting a paddle stimulator. I did get pain relief from the stimulator and was able to reduce my pain medication by 75%. I feel like I am in the twilight zone. Why didn't they do the paddle in the first place? I ask the right questions and get run around answers. Has anyone had the paddle stimulator surgery and does it work for you?
