Hey everyone, I heard from ThisPainIsABummer that he completed and passed his trial for the pain pump last week. He has really been having a very hard time and this is why he has been MIA from the forum. He said he will be back as soon as he gets to feeling better which hopefully will be soon. I told him I would be glad to update everyone here of his good news.

A successful pain pump trial is great news!yeah Thank you Susie for the update!….and I hope ThisPainIsABummer will consider giving us a detailed report on the trial. I have a feeling a pump is in my future, but trying to put it off as long as possible, but I'm very interested in any information on it.
