Hey guys, thanks for the quick replys.
PAlady, I debated for a long time about saying anything as I know everybody doesn't read all the posts and I didn't want to jump tp conclusions, but when I was ignored a few days ago and Gramps welcomed me back in that post I decided to say something, but thanks for the warm response
lassieluv and ryand, I've been posting for quite awhile actually, about18 months. I posted about my mom back in December, then I tried again in April and then finally a couple days ago. But hey, I really appreciate your responses now.
Shannon and Underbus, my mom had a pump inplanted December 06 but she wasn't getting a lot of pain relief from it. It turned out she had a fall in March 07 that had dislodged the cath. So in December07, they went back in and kept the same pump in, but a new cath. about a week later she said she started to feel numb in her legs and on the day of her appointment with the neuro, while she was dressing for that appointment, she went paralyzed and fell to the bed and couldn't move her legs. She was rushed to the hospital and had the pump completely taken out and what they said was they found meningitus in the cath, gave her strong anti-biotics. After that she went in patient to rehab for about a month and she just finished out patient rehab. She still has issues with one leg but over time should have a full recovery. It was really scary as she also lost bathromm control on both, she couldn't feel when she needed to go and then she needed to go but couldn't so we had to cath her at home. I am so glad she is better, but it was rough.
Mochiah, I hope your mini vacations are for good reasons, not health related.
Thanks again for reaching out now and hope you are doing well.
