Hi Stella Marie,
After reading your post I became very worried. As of yet I haven't been to the FDA website but I wanted to ask a question about what you said about pumps that have been implanted recently. What is considered recent? I have had my pump for nearly two and a half years and am now at last at a level in my pump of
11 (?) dose of diaudid everyday. I also have found that finally after 2 and half years I have gotten to a
point where I am finally getting relief and have started to become active and up and about after nearly
15 years of being bed ridden. Needless to say I am over joyed by this change in my pain level. So my question is if 2 and a half years is recent, as you said in your post? I would hate to think that after finally reaching a tolerable pain level that allows me to begin living again that my pump is one of the recalled pumps.
Any help with this would be truly appreciated.
Good luck to you and I am sorry you are having so many problems, also I agree with everyone else that say you should definitely find a dr. because it is just inhumane to think that you have to go through the
with-drawls and pain that I am sure accompanies it.
Thanks for listening and I will be calling my dr. asap and going to the web site you talked about.
