Sun, Mar 1 2:34pm · Stim wave procedure for chronic abdominal pain in Chronic Pain

@quark My Nevro HF10 is also MRI compatible but that's not as simple as it sounds. First I must have my 16 electrodes tested for electrical resistance. That requires a short test with the Nevro rep (when she's in town). Then she certifies that I'm OK for an MRI. But, neither the local hospital system nor local imaging centers will give me an MRI if I have an SCS, so I have to travel 1 hr. north to one that will, in Savannah. There I present my certificate and turn off my SCS before entering the room with the MRI. After that, it's business as usual. It's not the product that's the problem but the knowledge of SCSs by the people running the centers.

@gracie2018 If you look back from posts starting a year or so and before that there is a lot of info for you on the Nevro SCS

Fri, Jan 3 2:23pm · Does Back Pain ever Get Better? in Chronic Pain

@ashby1947 Very sorry to hear about your back pain. Mine changed to 0 when I got a new air-cushion mattress/bed 15 years ago (won't give the brand). Years later some of the old problems came back but not related to a bad mattress. A back-torqueing golf swing brought back my problems and new ones. Eventually, a spinal cord stimulator, monthly chiropractic adjustment of my sacrum, and hydrocodone as needed and I'm totally pain-free 29 days a month. It may sound drastic but a life without pain is worth the effort.

Dec 30, 2019 · HF 10 Spinal Cord Stimulation Device (Relieves back and leg pain) in Chronic Pain

@jujumars Good luck with your trial. Ask the Nevro rep about the battery life! I have a battery that is the generation older than yours will be. A friend and I had the Nevro implanted the same day less than 2 1/2 yr. ago. He already had to replace his battery. Mine takes twice as long, if not more, to charge than it did when first implanted. For example, I charged it about 14 hours ago and just checked it and it's more than half depleted. I fear I'll need surgery in the next year, also. To be fair, he left his in the "on" position after it discharged and didn't use it for more than 4 months (long story). I don't know if not turning it off when he was no longer charging it damaged the battery as opposed to turning it off and then not charging it. Anyway, the battery life is something to ask of the Nevro rep, if you haven't already.

Dec 15, 2019 · Anyone used Spinal Cord Stimulation for pudendal nerve entrapment? in Chronic Pain

I have had great success regarding lower back pain from my high-frequency SCS. It's been more than 2 years that I can sit in the morning without pain. It has NOT helped with my neuropathy. I know it's working because when I forget to charge it, my back starts hurting. It's charging this morning as I type this, pain-free.

Dec 13, 2019 · Broken back, neck surgery & RSD: Mattress recommendations? in Chronic Pain

I had back issues for 10+ years, including morning back pain, and never considered a mattress change. Then we packed up everything before our move from VA to GA and we had no bed to sleep on the last night. We considered a hotel but a friend suggested we borrow her camping air mattress. I used it and awakened the next morning to ZERO back pain. I quickly ordered the one you always see on TV and specified delivery at my new address. Morning back pain disappeared except for subsequent golf injuries. 15 years later and I'm still using the same bed.

@kthychrls11 I got mine 2 weeks after my trial. I live in SE GA and know 5 other people who have gotten them that quickly. Isn't another surgeon available?
