: My son is 6 years old and has Cerebal Palsy and he is very spastic. The Drs. feel i should have a baclofen pump placed in his spine. Does anyone have any experience with this procedure? Do you feel it is a good idea?
I am the father of a six year old with spastic quadraplegic CP. He has been on oral baclofen for the past year or so with some positive effect. This Monday he will get his test dose, if all goes well he will he will have the pump inserted Tuesday. We're not hoping for any miracles, just to give him a chance to maximize his potential. Good Luck to all that are also on this caretakers path.
