So I've been diagnosed with CRPS for the last year. This month I finally met with a consultant who wanted to get right now to treatment. I'd already tried most other treatments and was referred to a consultant at St Thomas London for a spinal cord stimulator. Despite many doctors being concerned that I was too young for the procedure (I'm 21) I received the trail last Sunday, not even two weeks after first meeting my new consultant. After having a follow up yesterday we both agreed that the treatment had worked beyond our hopes. Although I have had excruciating back pain (which settled down after a few days) from the procedure it has been worth it. I am now due to have the full implant on Sunday and I am so excited to be able to move on with my life and act like my age.
I hope many others in my situation receive this same great care and have the same positive outcome. 😊
