Pain pump trial day 3 - SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't been on here in AGES. I think the last time i was on was after my first rib bisection surgery (did nothing) in may of last year.
my trial for a pain pump started tuesday. They had to do a blood patch yestarday to stop the horrendous spinal headache i had. So Tuesday and Wednesday was not fun at all.
However, today was AMAZING! 15 years of constant pain and i mean CONSTANT pain ended about 10am this morning after they raised the dosage i was getting. i forgot what it was like to not be in pain. It's like i don't even remember how to be normal. i'm so used to battling through a work day doing everything i can to make it to the end of the day everyday and then laying down the rest of the night. that was my life for a long long time.
i still have an scs and i'm going to keep it along with the pump. They say they can do the permanent implant as early as 5/7.
anywho...just wanted to pass on some good news for once. I know this is tough but keep fighting everyone!!!
