Arrow Welcome to the SCS / Pain Pump forum

This is a requested forum to discuss spinal cord stimulators and pain pumps. I hope you find it a useful place for information and discussion about these treatment options.

Best,

Default Going on 3 months with my SCS Implant

Thank you so much for starting this forum. I am excited to have a place to post questions and concerns directly with those who have SCS implants and to be a source for those who are contemplating an implant. Awesome!!

Default Scs

I am so glad that there is a thread for SCS patients. I have the ANS system. Anyone else with it? How do you like it?

Default Hello Ouellem !

Good to have you!
This SCS forum was just created this month!
It would be great if you started a new thread asking about the ANS. As the forum builds, we'll be able to learn more from each other.
How long have you had your SCS? Are you getting along ok with it?
I'll be getting the Medtronics implanted in one week.

Glad you jumped on board. Let us know more about you!
What pain condition are you being treated for?

Writing as a patient who, I believe, is very near to scheduling the trial implant, I am grateful for the existence of this forum as a means to share and gain helpful insights both pro and con to the whole of the implant process.

Thank you very much,
Mark56
