I was sent this link today on Spinal Cord Stimlation. It's the criteria from the UK, but I was surprised to see some of the information on it. I thought that anyone facing the decision about SCS might be interested in readin it also.

Revision for failed Back surgery, pseudoarthrosis L4-5, hemilaminectomies L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1, bmp added to revision fusion, replaced two bent screws that were reversing out of vertebrae - August 2, 2007
On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
