What can I expect from a morphine pump implant?
My Doctor recently tried to implant a Spinal Cord Stimulator but he could not get the wire leads positioned correctly due to epidural adhesions and calcifications. He is now sending me to another Doctor to evaluate a morphine pump implant.
Does anybody have the pump implant, and what can I expect?
Could I still do a hard days work or bounce around a little and have the cath stay in place?
What questions should I ask the Doctor, will I get better PM than the oral meds oxycont, hydrocodine, lyrica, ectodolac, tizanidine?
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
