I also love the fact that they talk up the how good this unit is when in reality there is no tracking if the patient had any relief or not.

    but i may try the ganglion nerve SCS soon
    I appreciate your experience. It sounds a lot like the surgeons who tell people who went into the hospital walking and come out permanently in a chair, "the operation was a success!" Btards.

    The running joke about surgeons is that the only outcome they track is mortality. So as long as you didn't die on their table, "the operation was a success!"

    i find most trials bogus , too short a period of time , the wire pulls out before you get home.
    since i have had 2 stimulators .
    i am interested in the ganglion root SCS , i may even do a trial of that myself

    they haven't worked well for sci patients , we are still waiting for a couple success stories .
    i also had to have mine removed for a needed mri which resulted in more permanent nerve loss due to the time it took
