... need for my Migraines can be given a lot easier. Any advice or thoughts on this would be great
A chest port-that would be some surgical type of thing that would deliver medicine through a permenent IV thing? Correct me if I'm wrong. I've heard that surgically implanted devices like that have problems. A morphine pump is far different, but I had a friend that got one-sort of bullied into it by his doctors at a pain clinic. This was for an FDA approved medical problem-been doing it for about 10 years. The pump implant geatly irritated my friend-caused pain, ruined his ability to do the simple things that he had been able to do-like sit. I've heard complaints about the IV ports- sanitation problems-irritation problems-system immune problems. I would think that it would be uncomfortable. While I think that all doctors should have to spend 6 months as a laboror to understand daily pain, they should be pushed off a ladder to understand immediate pain, and be attacked by a dog- maybe they should be forced to have some implant and wear that while they unload bricks or dig a ditch. Some doctors just get enthusiastic about technology-they do want to help-but they don't understand they side-effects or dismiss the complaints. Look at all the joint replacements going on now- the recall of metal on metal hip replacements
