Hello, I am nini53, I do not have a pain pump, I do have a failed neurostimulator. In the beginning I asked for the pain pump, I was told that the neurostim was better cause with a pump, my body would get used to the medicines and I would have to keep upping my meds.
Sadly for me, I didnt think that with or without a pain pump, my meds were going to change and increase anyway. I wasnt thinking, its already happened, my meds have been upped over the last 15 years, its going to happen,
Anyway good luck to you whatever you decide, take care.
