I had a VERY successful trial, but the permanent unit is not working for my leg pain at all. I feel as though I wasted a whole year. I have had many lower back surgeries ranging from laminectomies to fusions. I can now only walk about 20 feet at a time due to severe nerve pain? I can't get a good MRI now that the stimulator is implanted. My pain is almost a 0 (zero) when I sit or lie down. It's a 10 very quickly when I stand or walk. living life in 20 foot increments is no life at all. I see the doctor next week. Probably going to have the stimulator removed in order to get proper tests and diagnosis. I have a few questions:
Has ANYONE have or had this same problem? I know it's not a circulation problem is the only sure thing.
Has anyone had a successful stimulator trial, and then the permanent implanted and not help at all?
