my Dr wants me to get a ABBOTT nerve stimulator implanted, and I am so undecided as all actions up till now have failed to help stop the pain, there is one that might last 10 years on low, and must have battery recharged each day with a belt, and the other with 5 year battery that must be replaced in 5 years, I use a tens unit now and it helps a little but they say the wires all the way to the spine is a lot better, I read up on i and they are ok for MRI, has anyone had a ABBOTT ProclaimXR implanted? Please let me know as I must make my decision soon…am 85, had this pain since surgery in 1983, cant be up more than about 12 minutes without terrible pain,, I do need help.

I take 1800 gabapentin a day, seems to ease the pain in my back. slowly gone from 300 upwards.. doesn't seem to make much difference, but do as the Dr says, I will not take opiods so must rely on this..
