Bless You GladysJ.
I feel for you with this one. I also wish I had an answer for you, but I am facing something similiar. My difference is that I have decided agaist the SCS because I don't want to add anything else in my body that might go wrong :) I am sticking with the RFA (basically burning the nerves every six months). It's quite painful for me....for others....not so much. I think it depends on the Dr and how much pain relief they give you during the procedure.
I can't honestly recommend what you should or shouldn't do, but I've had many Drs recommend many things. Some think SCS is great...others not so much.
Some members have had great relief and others have had basically none from SCS.
I hope you find your answers and can have some pain relief. Today is an electric blanket on my back, lots of meds and rest until I have to take my daughter to the Dr this afternoon. I've been up since 3:00 AM because of uncontolled pain, so I do understand!
All my best!
