Hi, what kind of pain pump did you get and what pain does it treat? I have chronic pain from severe arthritis in my feet. I have tried everything....i even fused one of my feet. I would love to know more about this pump, if you don't mind sharing.

It is a Medtronic pain pump and I use morphine in itπŸ‘ It delivers 24 hours a day so you don’t have any delays covering pain πŸ€— I also have a remote β€œptm” that allows me to do a bolus shot every four hours if needed πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ I have two herniated disks, bulged disk, four bone spurs, MS pain both feet, left thigh, both hands, elbows, and neck. I am at a 3-4 on normal day and bad days I will do a bolus to keep me at this level πŸ™ I don’t use any other pain medication πŸ‘Œ This was replacement of old one I have had for seven years. For me it has been great πŸ‘πŸ€—πŸ™πŸΎπŸ© Ken

Kenu what kind of pain do you have in your feet from MS? Nerve pain or muscle pain? How would you describe it. I’m so tired of taking 5 different pain meds...wondering if pain pump might be good for me.

And so glad to hear the surgery went well and that Medtronic made sure you were well taken care of!

Hope all goes well hun xxx 😊😊😊 u deserve chocolate after that! 🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫

Kenu I'm so glad you got it and everything worked out well!


Yay! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ glad it all went well!


What a great answer to prayer! Thanks for letting us know.

Kenu Glad the replacement went well and you are only a little sore and that they gave you meds to help with the pain. Rest to help with pain. Hopefully, the pain will ease with time.


So glad that the surgery went well. I hope you heal quickly and the pump controls the pain!

Happy to hear all went well, Kenu . Praying the soreness goes away soon and the pump works perfectly too. πŸ’•

Up date day two after surgery and swelling has gone down a little. Still sore at surgery area about a 4-5 with no pain pills πŸ‘ Hopefully on the heal πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘ Will update again. Thanks everyone πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ˜‰πŸΎπŸ© Ken

I'm sorry to hear that. You are in my prayers!!!!

Was your pain pump done by your ortho/neuro or your pain clinic? I finally heard from the neuro I was referred to for the baclofen pump (7 weeks prior-not a good start) and the 1st available appt. is June 11th. I know the trial & insurance approval takes time. Of course my pain clinic said they could do it (after hearing I may be going somewhere else) which I knew would happen. Kept my cool. Concerned about the trial possibly being done by a pain dr. instead of neuroradiologist - was really hoping to meet with each of them to weigh my options. Still can but getting my pain/spacticity under control is the only possible glimmer of light of being able to attend nationals with my family this summer. -Kris
