I have had 3 back surgery's and have decided to try the spinal cord stimulator. The external tens did nothing to help. The trial wasn't that great because the leads aren't secured. Does or do you know anyone personaly who has this and is it working? My goal is to be able to decrease the amont of meds taken, but not hurt while doing so. Some pain i can deal with but really would like relief.

I had a spinal stimulator from Duke Univ... I'm sorry to tell you but I had one implanted and required 6 surgeries afterwards because they couldn't keep my leeds anchored either.
