Hello...I have been suffering with Chronic Pain in my back for over 20 years. I am presently on opiod pain medication and have been for over 15 years. Consequently, I am no longer able to keep my pain controlled or "in check" with this type pf therapy alone. Along with my lower back pain, it has spread to my hips, legs. I also have begun to have pain in my left shoulder area as will the right side also. I have gone through all of the preliminary steps and have been scheduled on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 for my trial with the Boston CSC. I therefore have questions about this and then hopefully moving on to long time insertion.

Call to speak with an ambassador. They can tell you their experience with the device, and answer many if not all of your questions. I have had mine for 12 years and will not give it back until I stop breathing and my heart stops. It has given me my life back. tel:800.819.4727

Thank you for replying to my post. I have contacted and I am waiting for an ambassador to get up with me. I am encouraged that you have had 12 years of positive response with your SCS. That gives me a lot of encouragement.

Soon I am going to have the trial period for the SCS. I am wondering if there are restrictions for driving during the trial period and also with the SCS put in permanently? Thank you for your response....

Dave,
I Would ask your doctor about driving. I do drive now, but keep my stimulator on a no-feel program. Have fun with your trial and let us know how it goes.

Absolutely amazing. After getting the trial, the first thing we did was take a walk...
