I am having some issues with my perm scs. I have not found anything really similar on the forums, so just wanted to see if any one else can relate.
I have the Medtronic Restore Ultra, placed at T11-12 for lower back pain. I have had it since 7/10/08, I get the relief in the legs great for the leg pain, but it doesnt go into my back at all, so all of the lower back pain is still there. Dr says that SCS is more for leg pain and not really for the back pain. I guess I missed that information before I decided to get the scs. I have also found that, although it takes care of the leg pain, I think it kind of aggrivates the lower back pain, like right in the lumbar area. Has anyone experienced this? I have had 2 surgeries since the implant to adjust the batter pack, so I have alot invested in the scs and do not want to give up.
Any advise or experience to share would be greatly appreciated.
