Hi I was reading pain pump notes I have been in pain for a very long time 6 car accidents. not my fault ok! any way i have Lupus dx 7 years ago. Osteoarthritis though out my body. have a replaced knee 2 years ago. Fibromyalgia, neuralgia and a lot of other crazy stuff. i worked hard all my life until 5 years ago i was no longer able to walk because of pain and Lupus . I was on meds at work and learn to bear the pain until my Lupus caught up with me and sent me to bed for 6 months. I have a long story I wont yet get into, but I have helped a lot of people with my past pain and 23 surgeries. (but I need help now, ) please I am scheduled to get the pain pump .
I am scared and have put it off before. I don't know anyone with lupus that has the pain pump . I am afraid it will cause an infection or my Lupus will react and send me back to bed again. does anyone have one who has moderate to severe Lupus symptoms? I am taking a lot of meds right now, . but i a not getting relief, to long on meds. I don't feel them in my head no cloudy stuff but i do forget a lot of stuff. That I hate . so will I feel the meds with pain pump I don't want it if I do. I saw on here some people do,
The meds are affecting my organs so i do have to change something. i have been on medicine since my first Car accident in 1985. Drunk driver hit me bad. but i came back and worked hard and did sports even, I tried the stimulator for 4 years it kept on breaking, had it taken out, I actually felt better having out of my body. I am at a point now if i go watch my grandsons game i have to lay down for two days because the pain is so bad just from that. I want some life back maybe go back to school finish my masters. can i do that with the pump. can I hold my grandchild and not feel like Im going to drop him, So any advice from any one with this issue? I will be waiting. Thanks for letting me join u.
