      Yes! I had my first one (St. Jude/Abbott) put in surgically and after 3 years the generator stopped working. I had to wait 2 years to get it replaced due to Covid and elective surgery restrictions. Now I have a NEVRO HF10. It has improved my walking and pain about 50%. I am happy I decided on having it replaced.

      I have. It worked about 50% of the time. Now I’m overweight and can’t charge it. I would make sure you do the trial time first. Pain management does that. That will let you know if it will work for you! Good luck!

      They were going to put one in for my neck but couldn't get it through the scar tissue! I would ask first if a tens unit is like a stimulator! If it is try that first before the surgically implant the stimulator! Just a thought!
