Mon, Jun 15 10:07pm · Implantable neurostimulator for chronic pain in Spine Health

Hey Jim! Glad to give you some ans. on my stimulator, etc. I have no problem with the stimulator. I have degeneration where my spine was fused. No one wants to help me because of the placement of the leads along my spinal cord. I don't know what course they could take & may never know if no one even won't give me a chance to try to repair it. I have been active all my life & now I am down to a few hrs up, few hrs.in the chair, etc. I can still get things done but it takes all day. NO LIFTING at all or i am down for a few days also. I won't use pain meds except over the counter because I am allergic to most things unless it is natural. HA! 70s are quite a adventure!! Some Drs act like you are too senile to know your own body!! Tends to bring out the attitude in me! Good luck with your health! I will try to find John bishop. Thanks

I have had a Boston Scientific Spinal Cord Stimulator since 2012. Spinal cord injury at work. Complete lower lumbar. (2000) Pain for years.Leg seizing all the time, etc. Dr Abram,Burger / Phoenix, Az. did the operation & I have been doing well until 2018. My fusion collapsed due to degeneration/ age, etc. No one will see me now because I have had 3 Drs. before. Unable to find someone in Florida that will help me. Constant pain now & no longer mobile. Refer from Mayo to Baptist.Due to advanced condition, refused.
