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~~

Take care ~~ God Bless ~~
