I was recently recommended for a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) implant, as I have failed all conservative pain management attempts (both pharmacological and non-pharmacological) for neuropathic pain. I found out earlier this week that I was approved for a four day trial, which is scheduled for 6/25/18. I have a friend with ankylosing spondylitis who had a SCS implanted last fall, and he said it has significantly helped with his spinal pain.
Has anyone on this forum had the trial or the surgery for the permanent SCS device? Can you think of any reasons why a person with AMN should not consider this device?
