I have that Medtronic pain pump which that's what they call the ithrathecal i just can't pronounce or spell it LOL. I regret it right now but it was okay when I had a doctor that knew how to deal with it and help with it but every time I have a problem this doctor is nowhere to be found and it's always on a weekend I've been getting the code 8503 all day I know I'm not getting the right amount i hurt like crazy the medicine they have me on fentanyl and bubitrol I don't know how to spell that either.
But a little while ago my bolus gave me the code 0592. I'm kind of scared because all these years I've been having this I've been told you're not let it run out do not let it have the critical alarm go off.2 months ago I had my warning alarm go off and then a few days later the critical it was like that for about
a week and a half Medtronic told me you couldn't be like that when I called them about
it my doctor telling me it don't mean anything. maybe to him it didn't mean anything but to me I was worried. I was at my dog's I had a toy my shirt every time it went off at night and would attack me well not really attack he would dig and wake me up at night he only weighs 2 pounds. We don't do much damage but the milk laws on him and then finally when they did go and put some medicine in they had the nerve to ask my my stomach was so scratched up.
Like I said that only been 2 months ago but I have been in more pain than I've ever been in since I've had it then I don't know if something is wrong or whatever my stomach is really numb today and I just got it filled today my old doctor was great but moved and they quit doing all this Medtronic stuff of that clinic, I can tell that they really don't care how I feel at this different clinic im treated as if I'm just somebody to make money off from. It's already been too much for me I'm really depressed all the time and now being in this extra pain I'm really scared I don't want to end up like my dad and that's all I've been thinking about
lately my dad ended up killing himself because he couldn't take the pain he had I'm not saying that I would do but I'm scared even thinking about
it it's like everyday, when its real bad I say a little prayer God I'm ready please take me now I can't do this much longer... I don't know what's going to happen I'm really scared I don't like this pain and I don't like that the doctor don't seem to care if im in this much pain.
I made some paragrapghs to make your post easier to read.
