I just got my pain pump almost a month ago and I'm so thankful for it. I was at the end of things to "try and do" for we did them ALL! It takes a bit for the MD's to tweak things so that you get the relief you need. After over 2 years of unbearable pain, I'm finally able to sit...sleep and live life again!View Thread
I just received a pain pump after 2 years of terrible back and sciatic pain. It makes all the difference in the world and for once I can do things without terrible/unbearable pain. I'm off all my oral pain meds and all the terrible side effects that come from taking opioids.
I'd highly recommend it for anyone that wants their life back. A good MD is crucial!View Thread
