Today is yours to embrace........ for tomorrow, who knows what might be starring you in the face!


  • Here's to hoping that this new pump only brings you pain relief and more activity than you have been able to do in a long time. I'd love to read a post where you got to do something that you thought you would not ever do again......
  • It was a long time coming wasn't it Jim? I know you are on a very low dose right now and it will take a litt le time to reach your magic number but have no fear you will get there. Patients(sp?) is the key with PP.
    You have gone thru the hardest part and that was finally getting the pump. It's all down hill now.
    Please keep us all posted on your progress.
    You have needed this PP for a very long time and I am so happy you finally have it! If I played a small part in you deciding to get the PP then I am very happy.
    You have been a great support to me when I had my SCS removed and got my PP. I thank you for that. A few people on here was not happy with my choice but it was MY choice and I am very happy with it. I did what was right for me.
    Am so very happy you got the infection cleared up. I am sure you were very angry when they used tape on you after you told them you were allergic to it! That could have been very bad. Thank goodness all is well now.
    Do keep us posted on your progress.

    Your friend
