Hello!! I am currently writing an article for painscale.com and would love to have someone's positive experience with a Boston Scientific SCS device. What type of pain caused you to get an SCS device? How long have you had it? Tell me about your success with it. How has it changed your life? I do not have to use your real name, I can use initials or a nickname. I just need your permission to write an article about your story and how it changed your life. Thanks!! Deblet

I'm a new SCS Patient I had my surgery a week ago. I was injured in the line of duty while serving in the Navy and have suffered from chronic pain for half of my life, 20 years. I've experienced many obstacles to getting any Meaningful pain relief I now feel the fog of Pain lift, now the sun is out and I couldnt be happier. Im thankful for the Boston Scientific rep Sara Goza for answering all my questioned. Dr David Fairleigh and medical team at The Gulf Coast pain institute made the process less intimidating and help me get past my mental Obstacles. My mind is not clouded by pain anymore. I feel like I can live and enjoy Life again.

I am an older male who has been living with Chronic pain for over 15 years. Lower back -> Legs -> feet., due to 5 discs in my lower back that are cutting into the spinal canal space and neuropathic pain in my feet and toes. I had the SCS device implanted last week, so far so good, completely eliminated neuropathic pain in my feet. The device is not set up yet, Doc appt on Monday to finish, but they gave me one program that does wonders on my feet and about 60% pain relief on my lower back. I can get more relief on the lower back if I crank it up to 30%, but when I do that the bottom of my feet and lower leg become numb. Bottom line, after 1 week I am amazed at the pain relief I get. Can I get a copy of the article when you're done?
