A question for those of you with pumps -
When my PM was filling and reprogramming mine on Friday, instead of the normal we got a message telling us that the pump motor had stalled. My Dr then,... called out one of the Medtronic reps to do a full diagnostic, print out, etc. It turns out that my pump has been having temporary stops/starts for a little while now - this also fits with what we've noticed - that sometimes there is more medication left in my pump at my refill appointments than there should be. I have changes in my pain and spasms, but I don't have records of the dates to cross-reference.
Now - the head people have said it's 'probably' safe. But my PM is a bit worried and I'm more than a bit worried. Baclofen is one of those things you can't muck around with - if the pump stops dead I'm in strife.
Now - it's only 3 years old, so it shouldn't be needing replacing. But - has anyone else had such problems with their pump? What was the outcome?
