@jimhd My Pain Medicine doc at Mayo said that a peripheral nerve stimulator is better for targeting pain in feet and ankles. I'm heading back up to Rochester MN next month to trail a SCS for my back issues and a peripheral nerve stimulator for meralgia paresthetica and foot/ankle pain. Should be a fun trip!!!
@jimhd Jim, there's a huge difference between a spinal cord stimulator and a peripheral nerve stimulator. I was suggesting a PERIPHERAL NERVE STIMULATOR for those whose neuropathy pain is limited to the feet and ankles.
For all of those with severe neuropathy pain in the feet and ankles, I urge you to talk with your doc/pain management about the possibility of getting a peripheral nerve stimulator. Take a look at SPR Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (SPRINT) and Bioness StimRouter. SPR is A 60-day treatment; StimRouter is a permanent implant.
@jesfactsmon Hank, if your wife's neuropathy pain is only in her feet and legs, you and she might want to take a look at the possibility of getting a peripheral nerve stimulator installed. Read about the SPR Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (SPRINT) and the Bioness StimRouter. Could give her some pain relief.
