My name is Joel and I have been living with back pain since 2002. The reason why the title says, "Been a while" is because I use to be very active on message boards many years ago, but the board shut down. I believe it was called the Backroom. Anyways, I'm still suffering along and thought I would get back into message boards.
Here is a brief history-
Born with congenital scoliosis
Herniated L5/S1 in 2002 (I believe from lifting patients)
2 microD's - FAILED!
SCS implant -doesn't work anymore(lead moved)
Scar tissue causing nerve impingement
Back and leg pain/numbness
Been experiencing new pain and am thinking of getting a new SCS.
Looking forward to joining in on conversations!
