pain pump info

I am a chronic painsufferer with 4 back operations. I've been on oral meds for 7 years but I have reactions to any oralmeds. I also react to dilaudid and fentynal so the only med I could tolerate is morphine. I'm afraid of what will happen if the morphine doesn't help, but I live in Fl and it's become impossible to continue with oral meds so my PM doctor wants me to consult with a colleague about the pain pump. Any thoughts or info would be greatly appreciated.

    I have had a pain pump for over 2 years. If I were you I would go for it!! I have Dilaudid in mine(my own choice) but most Doctors prefer using morphine and with great success. I do not even think about my pump. It's there in my side doing it's job. I go in for a refill every 5 months and for increases when I need one. I will send you a PM very soon with more information that can help you decide.
