Hushie, Thanks again for the concern. The trial did help but I would say reduced the pain around 40% but, sometimes I would hurt worse down to only helping around 15% at times. When I would turn the stimulator up enough to help it was so striong I couldn't walk, it was really weird in my legs, also it didn't help my lower back pain. However, after being in constant pain for the last almost 3 year now, the relief I did get was more than welcome. I just worry about SSDI saying I am better and then I loose it. I still can't hold down a job down even after the permanent implant. I remember when I filed for SSDI, they told me I couldn't get it with only having chronic pain. They said their had to be an underlying problem like a pinced nerve or nerve root compression, or nerve damage. I have permanent nerve damage and radiculopathy in my right leg that is very advanced. I also have several bulging discs all through my lumbar from L2, all the way to L5 S1. I have spinal stenosis and Osteo arthiritis in my lumbar also. The L5 S1 has a nerve root compressed and the sciatic nerve was torn and that was when I had my first surgery in 2000, and it is and will never heal back. That is the permanent nerve damage. Like my Pain doctor said; They are not fixing the problem, they are just dealing with the pain, the underlying problem is there and other surgeries have been said to be of no help. I hope SSDI don't give me trouble when a review comes up. Anyway thanks Hushie for allowing me to rant on and on. May GOD bless you richly for having such a caring heart for someone you don't even know.
