I had the pump implanted last November,it is now dispensing 400mg a day. I have been in a chair sincer I took my stroke in May 06. I'm wondering at what doesl others who have the pump are receiving to being mobil? The pain and spascity have decreased significantly.I am 48 and had an stroke which left me with little movement on my left side
also left me unable to speak due to parralsis of my vocal cords. I would appreciate any responses related to the pump question.
I'm wondering as anyone out there, who have dealt with their legs turning inwards, at the knees and if so, what if anything was done to correct this? I am getting disgusted and tired of this life. I know I should count my blessings
