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.

Thanks. We all need support. If we make enough noise maybe Abbott will take
another look and upgrade...if you trust then.

When did you do the trial ? Currently the abbot DRG is compatible with mri for extremities and they are I. Process for fda approval for whole body mri . I am scheduling a trial and my doc in Boston ( top doc) and he says DRG has had much success with the foot and lower extremities. DRG is better for lower extremities than normal spinal cord stim .
