  4. It does help with my pain in my back and legs. They can put stimulation just about any where the pain is through the nerves. Boston Scientific is the one I had implanted but the Doctor that did the surgery was in South Carolina. The most be implanted of your left buttock and yes it be a little uncomfortable to me but I don't have a lot of meat back there either. VA uses Boston implants also. if she lays on her right side then the left would be the spot. I once wanted it remove but I stayed with it. I sometime cut it on my sleep move and it puts me out and when I awake pain level 1-2 the main thing is getting the leads where you have the pain also pick the programs that you fell that works for you the best it was 4 programs maybe more now. Good luck this might help http://www.bostonscientific.com/en-US/patients/about-your-device/spinal-cord-stimulator-systems-scs/how-scs-systems-work.html

    Non-VA care

    stimulators are good for some people but its not for everyone. Try to put a battery on your ass for life and sleep on it. its not a good rest at night. No more MRI can be done because of this . I had mines 5 years some good in it and some very bad stuff is in it too. I use it about twice a month but its there for life unless u get it remove good luck.

  12. Has anybody receive a letter after 15 years of TDIU P&T TO UPDATE dependents status if so WHY ?
  13. If I was on here giving advice and I am 100% mental would you take my advice?? Never will so check where u get your info from from anyone including your attorney. just saying
  14. I understand .what is the best route for your claim but if you have an attorney let him or her do what u hired them for to win your claim that's all I did . Free advice is something you need to research for your self because all you hear is not correct. Attorneys credential are always listed. MY ADVICE OR ANYONE ELSE ON THIS FORUM, LEGAL ADVICE IS BETTER THAN mines or yours because that's what he or she get paid for. I Will never tell u to disagree against what you was advice on by your lawyer, but just check where you get our info from.
