I had a doctor suggested at one point and fellow workers comp insurance

I started with a new pain doctor at that time who knew how to implanted
pumps and how well they worked.
The second or third appointment with him I brought up the point that the
insurance company wants to have the pump implanted as soon as possible and
I wasn't convinced that it was necessary. My new pain management Dr. told
me that the insurance company has no business prescribing and approving a
pain pump before the Dr. requested it. And as far as he is concerned in
my case it would've been totally inappropriate to have a pump implanted..
That was about three years ago.
I heard from some people that they are God's sent and I've read about
others that say that they are useless.
Unless you are convinced that your pain is not manageable with oral
medications or having a pump implanted far outweighs the benefit continue
in our medication, I would wait, you can always have it put in later.
Remember it is a real bitch when they have to take it out

I am going to start testing medtronics for a pain pump.
I guess I am not a candidate for the one that Top has.
They are talking, the one that puts pain med into your spine,
and then you go and have it refilled every month.
Anyone familiar with this little baby?
The Dr made it sound GREAT.
And I have to say that my meds no long last and by 2 2:30 pm I am in pain
for the rest
of the day.
I am more than ready to try this.
I am tired of crying....yes crying all day.
Any one with good experience.
*fingers crossed for some YES'*
