    Hi I have read your comments and thought I would let you know I have a Spinal Cord stimulator implanted but it is in my upper chest and the electrodes are down my left arm I cannot find anyone else who has been implanted with this device for an upper limb problem! I find it is very effective and have had it insitu now 7 years.
    It is for nerve pain after amputation of little finger and ulna nerve problems.

    Hi I have read all Amanda’s replys and the nerve stimulator I have in my arm and the battery is in top of my left breast was implanted exctly the same way. I went in hospital had the electrodes imlanted over ulnar nerve top left arm then wires coming out of shoulder for two weeks trial and eventually had a medtronic batttry implanted in my chest 5yrs ago. As yet I havent been able to be in contact with anyone who has had one implanted for an upper limb. All seem to be implanted for spines or lower limbs.It certainly changed my life. Mary

    Hi Mike
    I haven’t a spinal nerve stimulator well I have but it is used to controll nerve pain down my arm and to the amputation site of a liitle finger. I have complex nerve damage and the stimulator was implanted. I was on MST Amitriptaline Zydol and many other pain killers but now just take Zydol for pain twice daily after 6 years of crippling pain it was wonderful.
    Hope this information is helpful. I have a leaflet on Spinal Nerve stimulators if you would like it.
    Your Mary.
