Has anyone had any experience with a Spinal Stimulator? My doctor suggested I do a trial to see if it’ll help with my chronic back pain. If you’re willing to share your experience I’d appreciate it.

      Hi, I had a lumbar fusion and unfortunately they just found it out was a failed fusion or pseudo arthritis failed back surgery.. the only option the offered is the spinal cord stimulator. I had vastly different opinions on them from doctors… in my opinion, they cause more harm than risk (but that’s just me—— not a medical professional and not offering medical advice) .. have you tried a TENS machine?

      My husband has the permanent one and is having it taken out. He has horrible back spasms.he has so much pain now. Has to use a cane. It is different for each person but that’s his experience with the stimulator
