a week after my first surgery i started with the firery pain in my right thumb and then it spread to my wrist and pointing finger. My doc. said it was normal pain. i had my left wrist done 2 weeks after my right. i went back to work 2 weeks after my left hand surgery. I started physical therapy right away but the more i did the more it hurt. A month goes by and my left thumb and wrist started hurting bad. For a long story short im 7 months after it started and hurting like hell. i'm on meds that take the edge off and 2 pain doc. later there talking about a dorsel column stimulater in my neck. has anyone gone through with this in there neck and how well does it work. thanks all.

    Hiya bjohnson763 I'm feeling for you my friend where yours spread east to west mine moved south to north fingertips to shoulder.  Anyway not sure if what you may be having done is the same but 2 years ago I had a SCS fitted in my neck and the battery fitted in the soft tissue in my back......as for results just remember we're all different what works for 1 person may not for someone else.  Because of the location of the stimulator mine moved remember we move our neck so much I did have 2 weeks relief...ish but 8 months later the stim needed to be moved back and sadly 8 months down the line to today it doesn't work as it's migrated again so now it's switched off and my wife says she will weigh me in rather than bury when that time comes so I'm a morphine taker now
