Given your long history of using Dilaudid odds are high you have built up a tolerance to it. Consider discussing Morphine with your dr., it's very much worth trying.
I think I have asked you this before, but will again, what is the dose of Dilaudid being used in your pump, I'm not talking about how much you receive in 24 hours, these are two separate issues.
A vast majority of prior members here that had pumps were for back pain, either with failed back syndrome from surgery or other issues. Whether it was Morphine or Dilaudid in their pumps they had x amount of milligrams in their pumps, & received x amount of milligrams over a 24 hour period, not micrograms.
I am guessing since your condition is related to blood clots this is why your dr is using micrograms with such a low dose. The conversion of 1000 micrograms equals 1 milligram. Knowing this I am not sure where this dr is coming from making such a statement about a lethal dose.
