I had a neurostimulator in my lower back on the left side where my bottom is put in a few years ago about 5 it worked very well for my bladder for about 3 years I then had it removed as it was really painfull * & stopped working properly 💔

    It's good to hear from you @Sparklebright63 :) I'm sorry to hear that your neurostimulator didn't always work properly, and caused you some pain. I haven't got any personal experience of neurostimulators, but I hope that one of our members who does will see your post and respond soon.

    Did you speak to your doctor about why it might not have worked as well as it could have done?
