I actually had the trial for the Medtronic, Neurostimulator done back in November. I was very reluctant, but needed some relief. I was supposed to have it in for 7-10 days, and I didnt last 2 days. I must say, it did feel very good in my legs, very good...BUT, I have a lot of nerve damage in my back so the leads caused a lot of pain in my back. I cried uncontrollably and went back in the next day and the pain dr. said this just isnt the best option for me. I was devastated that something else failed, but, I wanted that thing out! I would say, it doesnt hurt to try the trial. You can see if it works for you, if it does you know, if it doesnt, then, at least you know. I really wanted it to work, like I said, just to be able to 'fool my nerves' but, it just wasnt meant to be. I have heard great things from others who have said it is life changing. I do pray that you find relief.
