Hope all are having a good night!
just wanted to introduce myself. I am a new pain pump patient. Just had it implanted 11 days ago.. I am struggling a bit, with side effects of pump itself or surgery.
I also am not feeling pain relief yet as my doctor believes in starting very low dose on the pump meds and going up slowly. He is conservative, but based on what Ive learned in all my research I can understand why.
Thank you Pat and everyone for all the info..So kind of you to post your experiences and knowledge.
I see the latest post about pump dates back about a year. I was wondering if anyone out there is still interested in posting about pumps?
Im looking for some encouraging info as I must admit it has been a long haul for me- 7 years of pain (the worst being the past 2 years or so.)
Im trying to keep a positive outlook ... and can't wait to get back to my life as a wife and mother of 3 great kids..
Thanks and best wishes to all!
