I had a stimulator implanted about eight years ago and it was effective right away. It too about 70% of my pain away. Over the years, I have had to have it adjusted many times and I now wonder how well it works today. I am in pain 24/7 and most days, the pain is disabling. I guess that my neuropathic pain is just getting worse as time goes on.

Had mine installed in March 2019, I never had good results, the pad on my back would not stay in place. I'm going to try to have it taken out this summer and a spinal fusion done. That way, I can get away from morphine and stool softeners. Never can seem to get it regulated right. I want to have bowel movement in morning, which I usually do but sometimes it doesn't work until evening. If it does work in morning, then I have gas starting about noon, feeling like I have to go all the time. I hate it!
