      Hi Anne. After my stim I was finally diagnosed so yes, continued to see my physiotherapist for about 10 months. I had 3 nerve blocks and continued remedial massage up until recently. I also saw a traditional chinese therapist who was treating me with acupuncture but I have now ceased all therapies finally. Therapy and pain really is different for all of us… I hope you find your way and live pain free.

    Hi ive been reading your updates from time to time and i was intrigued to get more information from my dr. about the neurostim implant that you had done. She knew of nothing here in USA , only of a patient who did it in Canada with positive results. i inquired further on my own and Pelvic Messenger Radio sure enough had an interview with a Dr. Peters from Michigan that has done PN research and has become a leading expert on the implant. I sent my medical records asap and i await an answer. My doctor feels i am a candidate. http://www.beaumont.edu/press/news-stories/2013/101/destination-medicine-times-five/ Here is the link to his study involving the success of the implant with 5 women. In addition, i am surprised as i read about the next PN conference coming up they have a surgeon in attendance vs. information about the implant. Surgery is the last resort and can only compound the issue with more long term problems to follow. So wondering if you got the word your way about Dr. Peters implant work in the USA? he responded to my inquiry and said just him and another Dr. in North Dakota perform these implants regularly. I am from Rochester, NY(upstate) so it would be a 7 hour drive for me to get to Dr. Peters in Detroit, Michigan. i am anxiously awaiting!! (And i think my insurance will cover it)

      Sorry for my late reply Anne. Thank you for the information. No, I personally hadn’t heard of Dr Peter’s work, my implant was done locally. We have a few options in Australia. Good luck, I hope it all goes well for you. My implant was truly a life saver and I’ve been slowly progressing ever since.

      Hi Bobby, you’d have to ask the people that run the conference direct. I didn’t receive any details. Thanks for your comments. Hope you’re coping ok.
