I've changed my mind about trying the Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS). My sister found a lot of negative information on the web about it. One young lady is paralyzed from the waist down. Another person said the lead wires became corroded which run the length of one's spine. Still another person said the wires became entangled and they had to have anothe surgery to straighten them out. One also has to be going to the doctor for adjustment often. After having the Morphine Pump for several years, I don't want another foreign object in my body.

My health problems started on April 1, 1976 when I had Silicone Breast Implants placed in my body. In 1991 I had them removed because they ruptured. The silicone went somewhere in my body...the good Lord only knows

where. Nowadays more women are getting them than ever. Apparently they don't believe all the horrible stories from women of the past, including me,

who experienced major problems with them. Any woman considering having breast implants placed in their body should go to the website where they will read and see evidence of problems

women experienced with them.
