Spinal Cord Stimulator

This is something I’ve been resisting for almost 2 years and for good reason. The success rate is medium, it’s a 2 step process either way, and it doesn’t actually fix anything. But, I’m nearing the point now where I have 3 options, do nothing and live, the stimulator, or get a massive back surgery (with no guarantee).

But, if it can relieve even 30% of my pain, that’s an enormous win.

I've been living with chronic pain for almost 30 years and I've been through the ringer with injections, medications, physical therapy, Eastern medicine, group meetings, and surgery. I'm also a group facilitator for the American Chronic Pain Association and we focus on helping others living with chronic pain. Hopefully, reading this journal will let people know they're not alone and there is help.
