An intrathecal pain pump slowly delivers medication through sterile tubing into the intrathecal space around the spinal cord. Due to the method of delivery, a much smaller dose of medication is required.
(for complex regional pain syndrome type II)
Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips:
Make sure you read the booklet on the possible major side effects, as it is possible your doctor doesn't know. If you are not getting any relief, your PUMP MUST BE LOOKED AT WITH REAL TIME XRAYS. THIS IS IMPORTANT. If you feel a "mass" in the abdomen and low back, MAKE SURE YOUR DOCTOR listens. If he/she doesn't listen, go to the surgeon, or to another doctor ASAP.
