When your medication pump is beeping, now what do you do?
|For over five years I've had my indwelling pain medication pump. During these years there has been no troubles and so I thought this was the greatest choice I had ever made because my pain level was much lower and my medication intake also was very much lower than when I was taking the oral medications. I knew that eventually some time after about five years this pump would need to be replaced. I wasn't looking forward to having to do this but the time was suddenly upon me. My doctor asserted that on m next appointment, we would discuss the replacement of the pump. I wasn't concerned and thought this was ok.
What I didn't know at the time was that my life would take a sudden unexpected turn that would drastically change everything.
