Certainly DN is not an issue for her. We do not advocate the use of ENS near any metal implants and certainly signal generating device like a pacemaker or stimulator. Because the stimulator is on the opposite side there could be a case made that the distance is such that it would not be a concern. I think in a situation like this discussing it with the neurologist would be a prudent course of action prior to applying ENS.
