My husband had a DBS unit fitted in January. It has caused increasingly strong spasms in his back on the right side, so strong they fling him about unless he has stimulation very low at 0.4/5.
Unfortunately (understatement) this has caused a serious back injury. He is having to have emergency surgery to fuse his back tomorrow.
We are getting no help from our DBS centre on how to stop these spasms during the post operative period though it be will be essential to do so as they will otherwise interfere with recovery.
Does anyone have experience of DBS and back spasms and can you recommend any neurologist with the ability to help.
