    Does anyone have a nerve stimulator implanted. I am having one put in in a couple of weeks, and just wanted to know if anyone else has one to tell me how it is working for you. I am mainley getting it due to permanent nerve damage in my lower back, but they also use it for chronic pain. Any info would be appreciated.

    Hi five0- I was tested for this by a pain specialist. I looked like r2d2 with wires comming out of my skull-not a pretty sight!! I have Fibro and chronic daily headaches, for me it didn't work. I therefore didn't have the implant, but for others I talked to it was very sucessful!
    Were you tested for the stimulator before planning the surgery?
    Good luck to you and God Bless
