morphine pump question

Hi, I have been on this site for a while until they changed it, I am still using my old name if anyone remembers me. I had a morphine pump placed in about 4yrs. ago and always had good things to say about it. For me it was a miracle for my pain after neck surgery. I just had back surgery, spinal fusion about 6 months ago. They also had a morphine pump and had asked if anyone had trouble with swollen ankles after surgery, and another asked if anyone had trouble breathing after back surgery (also has a pump). Since my back surgery, I just started having trouble with swollen ankles and breathing. Is there anyone that has had to deal with this who can give me some information? I would really appreciate it, since this is usually dangerous sign, and yes I did go to two Drs. and they can't give me a answer yet. I am going again, but I would rather get the information from someone who has gone through it first. I want to thank you for your time and patience for responing to my problem. Take care and feel better. ~X(
