    Hi Soccerfan4114 - welcome to the support group -


    I did have one done on a trial period - it did help the pains in my legs but unfortunately it did not help my back pains.


    I do, however, have several friends that have this and have had at least 40% reduction in pain levels and also reduction in oral pain meds.


    The best thing to do is research this on the internet - find out the maker for this product and look it up - be sure when you research to put in: PROBLEMS WITH SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR IMPLANTS and also on the maker too - sometimes search engines do not list out any problems with them.


    Hope this helps - let me know if u have more questions~~
    ~~ Click on my name or picture and read my story ~~

    Take care ~~ God Bless ~~

    ~~ Joy ~~
