Hello and welcome, I have a SCS unit in my right lower back that has been sitting there completely useless since it was installed in May 2010, it was found to be installed to deep, so after another surgery to correct the first one, it was again useless due to the scar tissue. Along with that, I thought it should not be my responsibility to pay for the second surgery, not so says medicare, after the doctor get approval to do the surgery, it is up to me to pay for it. Which brings me to another subject, this is very expensive surgery, if you dont have a secondary insurance, please think a long time before you get it done.
