    Pain Pump Questions

    I am scheduled on June 24th to have a pain pump trial started...I have done my research but was wondering if anyone that has one could let me know how their experience has been with a pain pump? I sure would appreciate anyone telling me how it has worked for them. I suffer from Cauda Equina Syndrome from a herniated disc...also have had fusion surgery. Have been taking oral meds for quite a while now and it just isn't working...my pain levels are just too much...I want some sort of life again...been pretty much bedridden the past 6 months.😔

    Welcome to the board. Before I go into any details about a pain pump, could you tell us more about your issues? What other treatments have you tried. You mentioning having a herniated disc and a fusion. How long ago was the surgery? Have you consulted with several spine surgeons? What are your current symptoms?

    My mother-in-law has one and loves it.

    She gets the pump refilled every 3 months or so.

    She had surgery several times on this spot of her back and the this was only thing that worked.
