I had a pump placed in June and am still having adjustments done.  I live 200 miles from dr. so I don't go but every two months now.  I am hoping to get to a level of comfort.  The good thing is that they use much less pain medicine and it goes straight to the spinal cord, so there is way less side effects. you can go to and find out more on the pain pumps.
