Depending on your diagnosis, not having Spinal Surgery can cause you to be paralyzed. You should take any back or spinal surgery serious. The difference between some having these surgeries and others not having it is that not all of us have a choice.

My mom had a spinal cord stimulator put in (yes it does require surgery) however, a year later she had it taken out because it didn't help at much as she though. Also, it was a little but of a hassle because you have to "charge" it every now and then.

Here I go again, I'm not sure when you had yours put in @A MyFibroTeam Member but I just had mine put in 5 week's ago and I tell you, I'm so happy with mine. The healing for me wasn't good, I had to get use to the healing, but so far with the little pain meds I now have to take. I feel like a new person. My inpaint don't move and it last for 10 year's, you may need to look at medtroice ,it's all put right under the skin. And yes it may not be the best thing for some, I think things has got better over the years, as a matter of fact. One of the Dr. Is getting ready to have surgery for one. Mine works all over the body. Feet and all head to toes and you can cut it off when you want to.

I understand exercise not being right for you. Sounds like a gentle stimulation is better so as I can tell cranial sacral therapy is a good touch for you because it's mild hands on the base of spine at neck and low back and helps spinal fluid flow.
