Default Spinal Cord Stimulator Now In - Anyone Else Got One The Same?


Ginnie,

Just so you know (wasn't clear from your response), a Spinal Cord Stimulator,
while similar to a TENS unit, has to be implanted surgically (in Spiney's case,
the electrodes were all that were implanted, as his battery pack is external).
The SCS is one of the medical devices that is saved as one of the last things
to do for pain control (Pain Pump, aka "Morphine Pump" being one of the
others....they also have something used inside the brain, but I haven't heard
much about it except it was being used for pain control as well).

Robin
