    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,

    Spinal Cord Stimulator, "Pain Pump" Community- What do you think?

    I have been toying with the thought of starting an additional Web MD community for Implanted Pain Management Devices.

    This would include spinal cord stimulators and implanted delivery systems/ "pain pumps".

    Our community here seems to be getting more-and-more discussions regarding these treatment modalities.

    If there was a separate discussion group, it may be an asset to those who have questions, comments, or would like to address concerns regarding these pain treatment modalities.

    Please reply, whether you have this sort of system or you don't.

    If there seems to be a need, I'd gladly begin an additional community; if the need does not exist, I will not, of course.

    Thank you so much.
