Take your time weaning of the narcotics. This is not a race and you are not going to get a gold star if you finish faster. Like the rabbit and the turtle - slow and steady wins the race. You are more likely to relapse if you go too fast. Let you body adjust slowly and you will lessen any shocks or cravings to your system.
It take a couple of days for pumpster to approve your joining their group. You just have to wait, but they will send you an e-mail accepting you with instructions on how to log on and access their files. They have hundreds of pump patients with years of experience. I have learned more about
pumps, medications, and potenial problems and their solutions from that group.
Please keep in touch with all of us and let us know how the Prialt is working for you. I am hoping it will cover your pain issues with little or no side effects.
