Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I guess I thought we'd try a few oral meds or lots of PT or something before jumping to surgery. What am I missing? Why is a pain pump so much better than oral gabapentin or pregabalin? My dr at Rush is very keen to get one in me, but after 8 years battling infections from an SCS, I'm not really on board with the idea of yet another implant.
Anyone's knowledge of experience would be greatly appreciated. My neurologist was against more surgery until the doctor at Rush recommended it & now it's all he can talk about
