I would like to know if anyone else has gained excessive weight after getting the pain pump. Mine was put in December 2013 and in 6 months I have gained about 50lbs. I am more active and I don't think my appetite or diet has changed.
I have Schwannomatosis and the catheter is placing Dilaudid around my T8 and also into my lower spine where the benign tumors are on the nerves. It has worked GREAT except that I am so much heavier and carrying this extra weight around is AWFUL!!
Is the Dilaudid, or the placement of the Dilaudid, slowing my metabolism down and possibly messing with my entire gastro-intestinal system. My bowels are not functioning very well either. My PM doctor just keeps telling me I am not that fat. I think he is trying to be nice...LOL!!
HELP ME PLEASE!! Thank you!!
