I had a discectomy 2 years ago which although successful in an anatomical sense resulted in failed back surgery. I attended an 8-day course at St Thomas's on neuromodulation. A month after that I underwent a trial for a spinal cord stimulator. It didn't offer me much respite pain wise and decided to have the wires tunnelled into my back removed. I was wondering what happens next? I was told I would meet the consultant again at Pain Clinic but that is months away. Has anyone else been through this? What happened next? Your responses would be appreciated.
