My wife is a candidate for SCS right now, or some type of spinal fusion. She wants to avoid the fusion, of course, but is not sure that SCS is worth the trouble. One Dr. made a comment that doing SCS first can make it more difficult to do a fusion later if it doesn't work. We're following up on that.
When you say "mixed results", is it a case of sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't? Is it predictable as to when it might work and when not?
