NEW info on intrathecal pain pump....
First, Ron I know you would rather us seaarch a topic and read rather than start a new topic...but I've read everything there is on this site regarding pain pumps and I really want NEW info since the devise has recently changed. Plus, I'm suren more have had the pump implanted since the last long thread...
So, everyoone who has a pain pump, can you tell me the "good the bad and the ugly" once more about your pain pump. Edited but wanted to hear from the members of this site. I have so many questions.
*did you get off all oral meds:?
*is the devise uncomfy when you sit, esp if you lean forward:
*are you able to walk better?
*are you getting good relief??
*if the catheter comes out, is it simple to place back?
*are the med refills usually covered under most insurance as a copay?
*do most insurance companies approve the surgery? (I know the last two questions will depend on MY insurance)
*any other advice, experiences would be deeply appreciated.
Oh, and what is the pschy eval for?
