    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Hi Mazzarisi and welcome back,

    While you're waiting for responses, do a search via the upper right 'Search This Community' for spinal cord stimulator to see what others here have already said about it.

    It sounds like you're dealing with a lot and I hope others will have some thoughts for you.
    We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
