Hey All, Just a little back ground. I was in a MVA in April 2006. Received Double tib/fib fracture one with a compound, Fracture/Dislocation of C6/C7. Plates were placed and fused for C6/C7. Done pretty good for several years with just minor aches and pains. Since I have had a son who suffered a brain injury in Sept 2012. He required total card for close to a year and now just depends on us for carrying him. He is 4 yrs old and weighs about 45lbs. It has wreaked havoc on my neck. I started seeing a neurologist last year and have been going back and forth to a pain doctor. We've tried muscle relaxers, pain pills, injections, epidurals. No relief. He now says I need to have the Pain Pump placed. I am a nervous wreck but yet I need some type of relief so I can care for my son. I refuse to take pills now because of the mind alterations. I have to be mentally stable for my son at all times. I would never forgive myself if something happened to him and I was on meds. What can you tell me about this pump? I read about the side effects and WOW makes me a little nervous but I also know it effects people in different ways. Just looking for a little insight. Thanks! Welcome to Spine-Health
