@allsmiles5 I assume it would depend on how many and where the leads are in the wiring. Best of luck – I also have 8,9 and 10 pain, but have had no relief from stimulator fusions, epidural procedures of all kinds and tne 40 odd meds do not agree with my body or do nothing. It is one stimulator, I would think, with the implanted battery pack and your remote which can be programmed for the areas of pain. 2ladyjane85
Before you get a stimulator you have to go through a few different options such as injections. You just can’t go to the Doctor and say I’ll take a dozen. Good luck!
You mentioned St. Jude rep. is that the hospital in Memphis, TN or from the company that made you stimulator. What area of the country did you have your surgery? In reading these posts, your post is the only one that seems to be favorable. My pain specialist has suggested that I go to a neuro-surgeon to discuss having the stimulator surgery. Reading comments here is scary for me!
If i have 456789 disk pain how many stimulators would they give me?
