This pain pump thing is kind of a mystery still. There have been a couple of people
on the forum who rave about
the pump. Others have not been happy with theirs.
I worry about
the pain pump for myself because my doctor speaks of the pain pump
ALL the time. Every time I go in the office he's there speaking with another patient
THE pain pump. But here on the forum where there are REAL people I just
don't hear enough.
My doctor gave me a phamplet put out by Medtronic that includes phone numbers
of happy customers. These people are called Ambassadors. PUT OUT BY MEDTRONIC!
Do they think we're not quite bright?
I have heard our doctors put a wonderful substance into the trial pump. The doctor said
it would be a great time for me to go out and take a walk in the park. (I haven't
taken a "walk" in the park for six years. ) When it comes time for the real thing,
the doctors use another substance that does not help with the pain that much.
I'm confused, conflicted, and scared. I want to feel good but I simply haven't
heard that much. The votes are not in as far as I'm concerned.
Pamela Neckapin wishes you well.
