Trial spinal Cord Stimulator

I am on my third day of scs trial. For me it is a miracle. I have been on pain meds for 8 years, osteoporosis, stenosis, degeneration, radiculopathy, since the trial the ONLY discomfort I have is from where the leads were inserted. My leads go from the low back to the thoracic spine. The nerves that effect the lower back, legs,etc. are in the thoracic spine. The stimulation I feel is not bothersome at all to me. My scs is Boston Scientific

I encourage you to give this your best shot, it is worth it. The only negative is I will have the trial removed next week and wait to get the permanent scs implanted.

Good Luck, Shug
