Hi Randy - like Stray said, I have a pump but mine is mainly for spasticity.
I have to say that my experience was the complete opposite to hers though - I was up and about within 2 days, surgical pain-wise I was almost back to normal within a week. My only problem was residual numbness through my groin and down my left leg - nobody ever worked out the cause, but it did wear off after a few weeks.
I do have some discomfort now with the pump itself - I have a 40mL pump, which is very large. Because I'm slim, it shows very clearly - it's probably 3" across and a good 1" thick.
All the best with the process.
