ITP Therapy, Anyone?

Oct 20, 2015 2:03 PM

Hi everyone! I'm new to the group. I have a load of stuff going on, but to summarize quickly - I have Scoliosis, CRPS, POTS, Dysautonomia, Fibromyalgia and thyroid issues. Pain management doctor thought ITP (intrathecal pump for pain) would be best for my chronic pain. I had it inserted in July, now having some issues. I don't know anyone else who has one. Anyone here, by chance?

Welcome DCMomInPainOuch! I'm sorry I can't offer help. I have fibro and hypothyroidism along with many other issues. I've never had an implant for pain. But be patient because several here are familiar with them. I wish you the very best. You'll be in my prayers! 🙏🌼

I started a Facebook group for anyone who has a pain pump, or anyone considering it. Please join and spread the word. Search FB for "Pain Pump for Chronic Pain". Thanks!!
