    Cervical Nevro Spinal Cord Stimulator

    Hello,
    My pain management team have recommended that I consider a Nevro high frequency spinal cord stimulator for neck and arm pain. I wondered if anyone has experience of the recovery process following insertion of leads at that level. They said that i would not be able to move my neck for up to four months while the leads scar in. I would really like to chat with someone who has had a stim put in at that level, and what type of restrictions etc they had - also to know if they were glad they had the procedure.
    Thanks for any advice
