Hi, I have posted on here previously about my husband whose has just had his 7th op to try and control all the different pain he is in after an accident following a disc into his spinal cord at L4/5. Pain was put down to various things so he has had 2 lower spine, 2 hip, 2 shoulder and 1 neck op's. Unfortunately it is getting worse. He has been referred to Pain Clinic and they have given his a TENS which has had little success although he is perserving. Does anyone have experience of what will be the next step from the Pain Clinic, I think our ultimate goal is a Spinal Cord Stimulator, but two questions, firstly how many other hoops will he have to jump (!!) through before he gets considered for a SCS and secondly is there anyone that has had sucess with a SCS that didn't with a TENS. I just don't want to think that as the TENS isn't really working a SCS won't either. Thanks for reading.
