I've suffered two prolapsed disc in the lumbar region and osteoarthritis in my back and hands for around 16 years now. I've tried pretty much every therapy and nonsurgical option going. my pain meds are getting endlessly increased and added to, to the point that I'm getting concerned about my ability to stay in work (worked full time since this all started, progressing well in my career and I'm so very terrified of losing this)and being able to concentrate sufficiently.
I have an appointment in two weeks to see my pain clinic doctor and was considering brining up spinal cord simulation add a potential next option. if there is a possibilities that the pain feedback cycle can be disrupted then I have the chance to return to maintenance. Has anyone tried this? Did you find it effective at all?
Very grateful for any advice and information you can provide
