DRG FOR IPN

I had the ABBOTT DRG spinal cord stimulator implanted about 3 years ago for toe and ball of feet throbbing from Neuropathy in both feet. It never worked at all. In fact, the last few weeks I had it on, the pain spread to my legs and glutes. I had electrical sensations throughout the legs, feet, and glutes. It was frightening and horribly painful. My DRG leads and battery are still in me, but turned off. All in all, a horrific experience. I reported the device to the FDA.

I am so sorry you had such an awful painful experience. I was told that SCS
wouldn't help with feet and toes- too far fro. Spinal chord. I did a DRG
trial that had great hope but the device wouldn't hold up in MRI.
Wow I wish you had better news. Good luck! Thanks for responding so quickly.
