Wondering if anyone else has a morphine/pain medication pump installed? If so how is it working, and what would you have done differently?

Thanks,
Nick

I had a morphine pump as an inpatient for several months... Sorry, I just saw this post. I can't say I would do anything different. it appears you cannot get one installed, then just keep it running as long as you like, as the doctors will monior and adjust it very, very often, and it is computer programmed by doctors and nurses. I never had one outside of the hospital. I was in in patient for 6 months with severe pain from pancreas disease...

I have been taking pill form morphine for many, many years before the pump and after the pump..
