Intrathecal Morphine Pump

Jul 09, 2016 7:03 AM

Hi,
I'm new to the community, I'm going in for an operation in August to have an intrathecal morphine pump fitted into my spine and was looking to see if anyone else has had this operation and what your experience is of it, how much it helped, recovery time etc.

Thank you.
Kind regards 😊

Solve, I don't have experience with that. I'm actually allergic to morphine so it wouldn't be an option. But I'm sure others may have. Hugs & prayers you have good results! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΌ

I have been debating it for some time. I just worry since I have RSD, that the procedure could do more damage than good. For now I maintain a pain level of about a 7 while taking 8mg dilaudid, 350mg of Soma 2x a day, 3200mg of Gabapentin and 2mg of Xanax to sleep. The pump would simplify my life, but once I grow tolerant to the morphine, what comes next? Something to think about. πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œ

Hi guys,
From what I've been told because it goes straight into your spine you don't grow a tolerance level to it, I'm having this done because all the drugs I'm on I'm becoming tolerant to and also my body is starting to reject them now because I've been on them for so many years.
Thanks for the feedback guys & hey back at ya Silvrrry Xxx 😊
