Hey everybody. I have a fusion coming up in about 10 days now. At my pre-op appointment I was told that if the fusion does not help me the next step my surgeon could offer would be a "pain pump." I have not heard much about these, I was told its a device that pumps some kind of medication, usually morphine or dilaudid into an epidural space of the spine I guess. Im not sure how the medication is supposed to work, whether it somehow helps the damaged nerve by being placed directly on it, or if it just has faster access to the brain used that way. Thanks for the info.
