I'm originally from the UK but have lived in Arizona for 40 years now.  I recently had the permanent spinal cord stimulator surgery and would love to chat with other people that have this.  Thx

    I'm sorry to hear that @nana7 are you in contact with your doctor or another specialist about how things are going with the implant?

    I’m in touch with the Medtronics Rep every two days, I really don’t know who else to talk about it to.  I was hoping to hear from other people going thru the same thing.

    I hear you @nana7. How is being in touch with the Medtronics Rep every two days going for you at the moment?

    Unfortunately, I haven't been through the same thing which means I cannot share my experiences with you. Hopefully, someone who has experienced this will be able to respond to you soon.

    In the meantime, we are listening to you at the very least  :)
