G'day Jenny, unfortunately my SCS was unsuccessful long term and I had many unwanted side effects, so the decision was made to remove it. If you are interested there is a FB group called Aussie Nevro Implantees and an American based group for all spinal cord stimulators. Whom is your specialist? I'm under Phil Finch down in South Perth, he is an amazing Doctor! Feel free to ask me as many questions as you like!
