I'm wondering if anyone out there might be able to help me with my question.
I've had 4 spinal surgeries in the past 2 years. They now want to implant a spinal stimulator to deal with the pain.
I'm wondering if having the wires leading into my spine and a small plastic pump implanted in my abdomen would make my lupus flare.
I know that lupus doesn't like invasions of our bodies so thought this was very important to ask. My neurosurgeon has no idea, and my pain management doctor suggested I start researching online and asking as many lupus patients and doctors as i can.
If anyone has any information or knows of any lupus patients with a spinal stimulator implant I sure would appreciate it.
Wishing you all many pain free days to come.
