idea  Hi Everyone, Thanks to ALL of you that posted to me on Friday... smilewinkgrin without your sharing the information you did.. I would be heading for the Hospital right now, shocked Scared,  with Dry Mouth from not being able to drink after midnight...I read from this sight all weekend and YES I postponed the Trial for the Pump yeah I am going to use the suggestions I was given and search for a New PM Dr. that will be more suited for me. I know that is much easier said than done, but even if the pump is something I am faced with down the road I would like to face it feeling more positive and as if all my questions were answered. I did not sleep much last night maybe an hour or 2 and my face is sure starting to show signs of it. Wrinkles and sags  here and there confused   from Pain,Stress,Anxiety, did I mention the pain? I hope you all had a great weekend and would Love to Chat anytime, it feels great to meet GOOD PEOPLE, who actually care and LISTEN.

It's great to read you decided not to go through with a procedure you were so unsure of.

And yes, the vice....an "interesting" image!

Beth, Bravo to you on making your decision not to go thru with the pump. Like you said maybe later down the road, but you need your head on right and have to feel right about the decision and you were not there. Good luck in your seach for a new pain dr.

Thankyou,everyone for your posts..I was reading up on The pain pump for some reason yesterday and the big thing that struck me most was it said you have to find a Dr that you are really comfortable with and who listens to you because once you have the pump put in you are pretty much stuck with that Dr because some Drs will not take new patients that have the pump from another Dr. I did not know that? anyway heres to my search for a New pm dr. and although I am the New Gal..Warm hugs to all of you.
