Neurostimulation has been key in my management of pain. It’s also satisfied my wish to find a way to be as self-sufficient with my management as I possibly can be.
My first stim was a peripheral stimulation unit (leads under the skin) and that was implanted in 2011. I still have this unit as a backup. In 2015 I had a sacral stim implanted but that fizzed (in my opinion) within three years. So in 2019 I had the sacral stim removed and replaced with a spinal cord neurostim.
WARNING: In the video, I talk about my experience and have a few Xrays pop up to demonstrate a little detail. If you’re the squeamish type you may not want to see the images – they are small, however.
