Angry Failed back surgerry

23 years ago after bad fall I had surgery in my back.After surgery I was left with a dropped foot and could only with a caliper.Pain was still present and I had to give up my job [ Restaurant Manager ]at Heathrow.I decided to come home to Ireland.Pain got worseand my R leg had no power in it.
I had a spinal implant inserted April 2014 and pain reduced 50% helped with Opids tablets.I was back driving. [Divine] October 2014 I was rearended and I got a mighty jolt. Long story short, wires moved and one is hitting my syatica nerve.
I have heard there is a high frequency implant on trial in USA.
PLEASE can anyone give me feedback on this.

I assume you mean opioid. They can be addictive and cause constipation. I myself have but rarely use Tylenol with codeine 3.
