I’m considering having a morphine pump implanted to try to control my pain. Has anyone done this? I have pain in my legs and feet that hasn’t been controlled on regular therapy.

Hi . I have no experience with morphine pumps, but I would be interested in hearing about yours if you go ahead with it. Is this an options your doctor has offered or one you are planning to suggest? I hope you get some responses from the community. Wishing you the best. - Lori (Team Member)
I first went to this pain specialist to talk about spinal cord stimulator to help with the pain. I did the week long trial and didn’t get the relief I was hoping for. The morphine pump was suggested as an option. I have done the trial for the pump with better results. It’s been approved by my insurance. I was hoping someone would have had some experience with it. Thanks for responding I will let you know what I do.
