Default DRG Implant,

I have basically run out of options for CRPS in my right leg and am down to implanting a DRG stimulator. During the trial I only got about 40% relief but I am seeing a different doctor that thinks he can do better. Can anyone who had a DRG or SCS implanted share their experience? Thanks all!

I have an implant it was put in in May. I am not seeing relief, I get alot of postural stimulation. All I have to do is just move a small amount and I will lose the stimulation to 1 side or all together. I have had it adjusted 3 or 4 times now, I am very upset since was my last hope. They aren't sure why it is like this but I hope you get better results.

I am sorry to hear that Michelle, I really appreciate you sharing your experience though. I have decided to put the DRG on hold for now as I have found other options to try first.
