I know for a fact that a few of our members have pain pumps, most I've heard only good things from about it. Please give them a few days to respond, as the forum has been slow lately. Also try using the "search site" option and look up "pain pump" for more info.

Hi Mogirl and welcome to HW. There is another post on here we just had about pain pumps. I have one and do not regret ever having it put in. It has given me a little of my life back and better quality of life. Since you have a failed back surgery, it may work very well for you. A friend of my daughter's just had one put in, she too had surgery and actually was worse after surgery. They tried the nerve stimulator and it was useless she said. She is doing so much better now. At first I dug my heels in and said no to my dr. it just seemed so final to me. Three months later I was having the pump put in, lol. He told me then, he knew I would be changing my mind. My pump is from MedTronics, go to their website and read about it there. If you have questions, please feel free to ask. Susie

Hi Tuttie and once again welcome aboard. You will see that I have responded to some questions you asked on one of the other posts here about pumps that was started by What Is Done.

We do ask all new members to start their own intro post so that all the members will see it and be able to pop on and tell you hello and welcome aboard. Other wise posting on an old thread may not get much attention.

To start your own post look to the left and you will see Post New Topic, click there and a heading will appear and type in something like maybe I am new here and going to have a trial for a pain pump. Then click again and type the body of your post & hit submit when finished.

We look forward to getting to know you. Take care.
