I read your post and it made me cry for you. I tried everything I could possibly try including an extensive surgery. My pain was so bad I considered suicide just to end my pain. Finally, after years of narcotics, invasive physical therapy, failed spinal cord stimulator surgery, lots of other drugs, and lots of doctors, I got a Medtronic Implanted Drug Infusion Pump. This pump does NOT provide systemic medication which is the advantage. I had gotten up to a dose of oxycontin that was so big I couldn’t increase it anymore and function. I was also taking percocet for breakthrough pain and gabapentin. The pump is surgically implanted in the side of the abdomen and tubing tunneled to the spinal cord where it is attached to the spine. The pump holds 10 mg of morphine and 10 mg of marcaine and that amount lasts about 70 days depending on your settings. It delivers a tiny amount of medication into the spine per day where it blocks pain signals going to the brain. The BIG positive is it does not distribute systemically thus eliminating the side effects of narcotics. The pump lasts about six years before it needs to be replaced and the only maintenance is a quick visit to have it refilled every couple of months. There is no exposed part or control that you have to deal with although getting used to having the pump in your stomach takes some getting used to. Adjustments are made by the doctors office. I am now on my second one so I think I have now had it for about ten years. I cannot tell you the difference it has made in my life. I will say it does not completely eliminate the pain and my pain is in a very personal area but it helps so much that I can function and have some normal life. Sometimes I barely notice my pain and sometimes it flares up but nothing like it was. I can tell you that stress will flare it up so it is important to try to keep your stress down. It is manufactured by Medtronic and you can check it out on their website. If you decide to consider it find a reputable pain management doctor. Preferably at a large university medical center pain management department. I go to the University of Kentucky Interventional Pain Management Clinic.
