Without scrolling through the posts, (knowing this question has probably been posted before) I would like to know your personal pros and cons with the implantable Morphine pump for chronic pain. I have Multiple Sclerosis and the oral medications are not controlling my leg pain. Time to take the next step, short of being placed in the hospital for 3 days, with an epidural.
Thanks for your reply. I have already tried all the Vic and Oxy remedies. If it were not for this lesion in my spinal cord, caused from Multiple Sclerosis, I think I could live my life without pain medication. I pray for a cure AND a reversal of the damage. That's my only hope for a more pain free quality of life. I am fortunate in one way...I can walk, unassisted. For this I am grateful. Best Wishes, Heather
