It's good that you and your husband are together on this and in agreement. It is a huge decision. Those 'red flags' cannot be ignored. You must have that 'green light' in your spirit before doing something like this. I'm glad that you aren't being highly pressured by the doctor(s), as I've seen this alot before. Some people had the feeling they were being sold a car.
I'm just sorry that you are victim to this chronic pain. I continue to hold on to hope that SOMEthing will break through in the medical arena, so that there are many avenues to better pain management.
We will always be here for you if you ever need or want support.
I value the fact that there are those on the forum who are here even tho they don't actually have one of these units. Nonetheless, they are very knowledged about it and the input they have to give is just as important as anybody else. Each person has a story to tell and I truly cherish each and every soul who comes here.
God Bless you,
