Does anyone here use a Pain Pump? If so how well do they work. and what meds are used in them? I know that if I don't have the SCS the PM doctor is going to offer this to me as an option, however, with me not being able to tolerate Morphine or Demerol would I stll be considered a canidate for a pump?



  • heres a post on meds in pump...search pain pump in the search window and you will find more statements....pete

  • You can key in pain pump into amy search box amd find site after site on them.
    The pump puts the meds directly into your spine bypassing the usual route. It does not go into your tummy.
    I have an SCS that failed me and my pain Doc reccomended a pain pump. I am seriousally considering one now.
    I was doing great until a fall put me in really bad shape again pain wise.
    I am so ready for the pain pump now!! Morphine gives me problems too but other meds can be used i believe.
    best of Luck

  • hello,
    i am on my 3rd pain pump in 16 years, the Dr started me on morphine and switched after 6 months. i had taken morphine for 4 years before the pump so he put me on Dilaudid. 16 years later i'm still on Dilaudid. i still take a pain tablet every 4 hr for other pains. the pump is mostly for low back and hip pain. i had some ups and downs with the pump. but all said, it has helped me live.

    if anyone has questions about the pump just post,
    thanks for listening,
    painpump, :H
