Im glad you find our forum and the nice thing is if you have a bad day sna just want to
vent or talk were her for you always. See were
here for one reason only and that dirty word
CHRONIC PAIN. Seems like a simple enough word
when you look at the word as a whole. But then
when you wake up in the morning with this over
coming sense of wantig to cut off or out what
is hurting the most. There are two thing that
go hand and hand with Chronic Pain.
1. Chronic pain itself
2. Loss of all the friends that you thought you use to have.
I think depending on the support system that you
have at home can play a huge impact on the way that you handle Chronic Pain and relationships. Now your asking about a Morphine pump on some folks here on the board have really decent pain relief with the
pump. I have a couple of questions for you?
1. Have you ever been on oral (P0) Morphine before, if so for how long.
2. Did the Morphine control your pain.
See there is another couple of drugs that you may want to consider like the Fentaynl pump systmem this drug is calculated in Microgrmas versus Milligrams. The Fent is a much better drug when you start wanting to go the pain pump route, it takes less of this medication to control your pain.
I will give you a short history about myself so you don't think that im a Google Medic or Google Nurse. I have been involved in the Emergency Medicine
field. I was a Paramedic/Fire Fighter/Deputy Sheriff.
I mean i had enough College credited hours to get a degree, but they were in some any seemed like hundred of boxes that had to be gone through. So any way I went back to College and recieved a Masters in Medicine. I ended up working Hospital ED all over the place. So i was given title two in fact. One of the badges said. Liaiosion Officer for the Third Year Residence. The other title was Training Proctor. All this meant was i trained about 38 doctors every three months roatation. The other title
was so i could teach other courses that they would be
using in the ED. They were taught to entubate, put in Central lines, Jugular lines, and chest tubes. Last but not least ECG interpertation and Cardiac Pharmacology.
I would walk the floors and we would get paged to just about everything. See we were a teaching hospital so this was each Resident got his chance to learn and practice.
Is sorry got off the beaten path again on this site we are one big family and were always ready
to help you find the right answer to. I know a lot of our families leave us out in the could and blab on about how bad they had or have it. Greg I know and i understand your pain im sure you think in the back of your mind that God is punishing you thats not true at all.Just keep the faith and i will also pray as will most of the folks here on the Forum wil. See i was force to retire for helath reasons. I have been in the Hospital now more than 600 plus days. I had Pulmonary Embolism,Pneumonia, both side.
