As I posted before I will be having the pain pump trial tomorrow. Today has not started off good. I woke up in horrible pain. I am not allowed to take any meds from today forward until the trial is over. It is going to be a long day for me. I think maybe I should of taken a vacation day today. I have so much riding on this trial. I just want "me" back. I realize that this is not a magic cure all for what is wrong with me, I just am looking to be more comfortable. I am going forward with this pump trial without my family drs approval. He states he "doesnt think much of the pain pump". Yea well I gave him my opinion on that one. He doesnt have to live everyday in my body. getting a littlw nervous over here!


  • That is wonderful news!! I do hope your trial will prove to be a huge success like mine was.

    How long will your trial be? I was in the Hospital 3 days when I had mine. But all Doctors may do their trials differently.

    A lot of Doctors know nothing about pain pumps and will bash them. Even the PM I use to have bashed them because he did not do pump implants. All he did was stimulator implants and he wanted my business!! But he did referr me to the great Neurosurgeon who did my pump implant.

    Please do keep us updated.
