I'm going for a pain pump trial on the 24th. It has been 2 long years since my doctors first recommended this, and I have weighed it back and forth. Finally I am ready to use any tool available to me. I'm ready to just start living my life like a normal human being rather than someone tied to my recliner or bed.
I've read many horror stories about Prialt. After discussing it in great detail with my doctors, I'm going for it. Some of the side effects are that it can make one crazy. Well, I think I'm already there! Not really, but the doctors have reassured me that they know what to watch for, and if it is administered correctly, the risks are very low.
So wish me luck. I'm ready for whatever help I can get.
Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
