Let me start by saying I know this is a silly question because all doctors and insurance companies are different. But I'm waiting to do the trial for the spinal cord stimulator and I'm getting anxious and impatient. I'd love various answers from people with different brands, if you don't mind and have time.
1. Which brand/model do you have?
2. What were your out of pocket costs?
3. How long did you wait between the trial and permanent implant?
4. What did it change in your life for the better?
5. What did it change in your life for the worse?

Thanks in advance for your advice. After dealing with chronic pain for several years (due to a number of contributing factors), I am thrilled that I might get even a tiny bit of relief.
