: 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?
My name is Elizabeth. I am 19 years old. Two years ago, I had the baclofen pump placed in me. The doctors said that it would not do to much. All they said the medicine would do is relaxes my muscles. But now with a little bit of therapy and my family's support I am able to walk a litlle. So, to answer your question "is it a good idea" I would have go with yes.
