: : Hi, My name is Maria...I'm 34 yrs old and have had RSD since 1998..I had (2) L4-L5 Surgeries in 1998 as a result of an accident.I developed Cauda Equina Syndrome. I also have Fibromyalgia and Degenerative Disc Disease...Anyway, now that you know what im up against...I am in the process of going for a Spinal Cord Stimulator. I am not surprised to see how many people are posting messages on this board..Im just looking for someone to tell me how this procedure helped them...if it did...I did all the research on the SCS and (have watched the video my Dr. gave me)about 3 times already...I need help with all this pain I am having..It also helps me to talk to people who have experience in this subject...Thank You to all who may respond to me. I appreciate any information on any subject that i have mentioned here...Best Wishes, Maria

: Hi Maria,
: I have had the SCS put in and taken out several times. I can tell you if they can get it placed correctly and it works for you it can bring great relief from the pain. Mine would work off and on but due to the structure of my epidural space the docs could not keep it in place. Definitely give the SCS a chance because it can be so much help. The surgery is not too bad either. Good luck. Lee Ann

Hi Lee Ann, Thank you for your quick response. I am actually looking forward to having the SCS. Its my last resort before a sympathectomy. Unfortunately medicines do not touch the pain im having in my hips,back and lower extremeties. I have to have 2 leads implanted because of the pain being in both legs and feet. Again thank you for your good wishes...Maria
