Good rest everyone and thanks for listening to my woes....

Hello, my name is Kim. I just joined this forum. I had my SCS implanted Aug. 2014. I agree that the trial one did more in terms of pain relief than did the permanent. I find a small amount of relief from this device. My problem now is that the RSD has spread to my Right foot (original point of origin in Left/dominant hand) and now may also be affecting my tailbone. I am unsure what to do now. I really don't want to go through the surgery and healing again for a small amount of relief but at the same time I need some sort of relief. My pain doctor has said there is really nothing else he can do other than install a pain pump. If you have any advise for me I would really appreciate it. I just feel alone in all of this and have no idea where to turn. Thanks. Kim
