Baclofen pump

Hi. I'm posting on behalf of my brother, who has aggressive primary progressive MS, now in its 10th year. My brother's doctors have recommended a baclofen pump, presumably to help manage spasticity/pain. He would appreciate feedback from anyone with experience using the baclofen pump. Pros/cons? Side effects? Thank you!
