Hi Tiddgys,
I am so glad that you have come to the decision to have the pain pump implanted. Sometimes making the decision is difficult, but, once that has happened, you are at peace with it. You know your body the best and are probably willing to do whatever is needed to let you lead a "normal" life <whatever normal might be ~ grin>. I went through this process when coming to the decision to have my stimulator replaced. My great concern is the build up of scar tissue over the years. There is a chance new leads won"t feed through and I might be looking at a morphine pump. If so, I might be looking for some input from you. When will you have the surgery? Good luck! I hope you have a comfortable day.
