Spinal stimulator questions

Posted by cicifromm @cicifromm, Aug 14, 2021

My mother in law who is mid 80's has been living with spinal problems for many years with a lot of pain. Surgery is not recommended. HF-10 is being suggested. What are worst side effects? Can a subsequent fall after implantation affect it? What is the rate of infection? She has scoliosis and wonders how that it will affect success of this procedure. Thank you so much for your thoughts

Has she tried RFA- Radio Frequency Ablation for lower back pain before going to a Spinal Cord Stimulator? I have lower back pain and have tried facet joint injections twice. The last one I had in June did not help. I am scheduled for RFA on September 9th.
