... Hi everyone; It's me Scioladyohio. Haven't been here for awhile either...I had my stimulator moved from my backside to my stomach area with really attractive wires that wrap around my side (yes, their very visable & they ache something terrible if I have to turn the stimulator up enough to cover up, and yes, that's all stimulators do is cover the pain up some) and then like...

... I'm actually going to be on narcotics the rest of my life (it's not RSD in my case but a neck injury from my Navy days). I'm trying to wean myself off neurontin as we speak because of all the side effects and clashes with other meds. That being said, it's not going well, and my pain level is way up (I am down from 3200 a day to 2000 a day right now). As to removing the... (39 replies)
... Hello. I too have been considering having my scs removed. My rsd originally started in my elbow; went to my hand where then they convinced me that in so many percentile that the scs would stop the rsd from moving.

... Hi Tigerlily; just a update; seen the new ortho surgeon - took him x-rays, reports he never received from my pain/main dr. - did my research on him; "supposed" to be the best in eastern Ohio; much to my own, I don't even know what to call it - "just plain sure that he won't get the stimulation down my arm either" gutfeeling (but I haven't been right about anything from the...

... Hi everyone- I've been off/on this site since Jan. To make a very long story short; I agreed to a scs as I was told by a Medronic rep that 95% of all cases of rsd are halted where they exist at the moment; I was in terrible, terrible pain, hated being on all the heavy duty drugs, what a mess the drugs made of my personal life (I have rsd in my right elbow that now has moved...

... Just wanted to add my two cents too. I was told by my pm on my first visit, we do 5 blocks, see how that goes, put in a stimulator and you don't have to see me for 5 years. I'm with Scruffysdad that these reps and doctors need to tell us the truth. ... (39 replies)
... Thank you for contacting me! Yes my accident was also in 1991, and single so I don't have a good support system but I know exactly what you mean by suffering for a very long time.

... Hey there, not sure if most of you have read my post, but I feel the need to add my two cents into the mix. I'm having mine removed in a couple of weeks.
