Thank you I will but I am afraid as I was not happy the way things turned out on the 1st trial. Now I have lots of questions. What happens if I have a bad reaction how long do I have to wait for them to start another drug? Remembering back it was not a good feeling being on the drug. It was scary I wanted to die. Anyway as they now say it was a hugh does and they are now giving a much smaller dose. You still have to wonder. Now I am being weaned off of large amounts of pain med's being delivered via my pump. It has been a night mare too. Drug withdraw symptoms. Anyway I will come back when this is all over with and et you know how it turns out. Say a prayer and wish me luck
I hope your experience will be great this time. I am getting ready to have the medtronic pump implanted (using Prialt). So far my trial injections have been miraculous. ZERO pain! My doctor talked with me about bad side effects people have had, but he told me that they were caused by giving too high a dose.
