Good Luck, Dave
Hi shoreline, i think we've seen each other a few times on this board! Do you mind if i ask you a few questions? You have a intrathecal pump right? My story is 30 yrs long, so i will get to the point. Have you ever heard a dr say that to get a morphine pump you have to stop all opioids for 6 weeks, in a rehab center? Im on fentanyl patch 100mcg & msir 30mg/3 a day prn. Is that too much? A person that would need a morphine pump certainly
would be on high doses of pain meds, right? Wrong? 4 lumbar lams with dural grafting, tethered cord, severe adhesive arachnoiditis. Thank you, gmak
