Medtronics ITB Baclofen Pump

Postby keepbattling » Thu Oct 21, 2010 6:30 pm

On October 5th i had a Baclofen pump implanted. I have to say I am not sure if I like it or not. The site where they put the pump is very swollen. I was told that that is normal and will take a couple of weeks to come down. I have been dizzy and nauseaus at times. Has anyone else got the pump and what was your experience with it. I am chalking it up to I'm not giving it enough time. At this moment, I am debating whether I made a mistake or not.. Let me know how its going for you ..

I had the pump implanted on May 2, 2012. I'm going through the same concerns as you. I did not realize how weak I would be. The point of all this was to be able to build up muscle strength. I am seeing the ms nurse tomorrow for a tysabri infusion & will discuss these issues.
diagnosed may 1994 rrms now spms, use a cane, walker, or wheelchair depending on distance, started tysabri infusions nov 2008, baclofen pump surgery may 2012
