Dec 29, 2018 · Has anyone any had the STim Wave spine stimulator installed? in Spine Health

The holidays slowed my response.

Fall of 2012 I was severely injured making a felony arrest. I needed immediate surgery but workers comp wasn't interested. 15 months later, I lost the use of my left leg completely. I couldnt drive and had to use a Walker. I sold my house so I could have surgery. I had L4, L5, and S1 fused, a rod installed, and screwed together.

I regained leg use and am able to drive again. My physical activity has been cut back to almost none. Anything I do sends pain levels sky high. epidurals haven't worked. Several different kinds of therapy has helped but not cured the pain. My doctor suggested a spinal stimulator and gave five brochures to review. The Stim Wave was one of the five. I had found it in my own research as well.it interests be because of the new technology.

Hello to ALL! I have a severe back injury and even after three surgeries and several fusions, I am still experiencing severe and chronic pain. My pain management specialist is talking about a spine stimulator. After some research I located the Stim Wave. With this unit, only the leads are implanted. No wires come through. The antenna is worn like a pager on your belt.

Has anyone tried one of the Stim Wave stimulators yet? Any feed back on them?
