I am on my first pump and after a week of meds have had the dosage of morphine upped. My whole back has gone numb.
history I have had 3 discs in my neck replaced and one in lower lumbar of back (disc degen) and the pump was put in to help regulate pain meds from residual pain.
I had to have 2 blood patches from the install of the device - hte second one worked great!. Then I had CSF Pool under at the part under my back. I went back Friday, Dr said it looked good, not to worry about the CSF pooling I would be ok. He upped the dosage (was .75 mg day 1.5mg day.
I am just nervous about my whole back going numb. I left a VM at Drs office that he will get Sunday or Monday.
