About Me

My photo
I am a 24 year old woman who has been battling chronic back and neck pain for the past six years. I am writing this blog to help others and to educate others about Peripheral Nerve Field Stimulation (PNFS) which is a new application for Neuromodulation technology that treats pain. My trial PNFS implant is scheduled for Monday, July 6th, 2009 and the final surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, July 21st, 2009. I will be documenting my journey through the process. _____________________________________

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update. I am doing much much better. I have much more energy and the stimulator is definitely helping. I still need pain meds here and there, but overall I know it has made a difference. Mostly I can tell based off of my finance's feedback. He says I almost never complain now (which I find hard to believe) :) but I know that means alot. Again, it is no miracle worker, but I will say that I am happy I did it. I still hope for better programing and am dealing with the scars from the surgery (which I PROMISE I will post soon. Again, I hope this blog has provided some insight, guidance, realism ... or whatever but overall I just pray that someone will benefit from my experiences. :)
