DRG stimulator for CRPS (RSD)


#1

Finally at the end of the road in treatment options. I had a dorsal root ganglia stimulator installed temporarily today. They put it in at the level of L1 nerve root I will let you guys know how it goes. It is a relatively new treatment for CRPS (RSD) or whatever you want to call it. :crossed_fingers:

Scott, I hope and pray you get some relief. You’ve had a long road and have still found the strength to help a lot of us. Best wishes.

Where’d you have it done? Guessing these aren’t available just anywhere.


#3

You and me both this is the last chance at some sort of normalcy.


#4

Good luck man. You’ve been at this far too long and have suffered immensely. I hope it works.


#5

Any luck with the drg stimulator? Iam considering it after 10 years of pain.


#6

So far so good I can tell a difference with DRG in place pain goes from a constant 10 to a 5/10 but I still get breakthrough pain that I have to take meds for.

Not happy you’re at a 5 but happy your pain levels sound like they’ve been cut in half. Half a loaf of bread is still bread.
