I have a Medtronic pain pump, s/p Granuloma from a past Dr putting in the pain pump in the middle of the Granuloma. I have had chronic pain for 20+ years. I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis at the age of 32. I am now 57. I am also a disabled nurse. I also have Fibromyalgia, agressive Osteoarthritis, cervical arthritis, herniated disc, and bulging discs. The granuloma surgery didn't give me a life anymore. I had a Left Hip Replacement on Jan 6, 2016. I thought I was doing better but have not been able to walk outside d/t terrible rain and snow from Jan-April. I stopped the pump and the pain pills because I thought it was making me chronically depressed. I know it was because now my mood is so much better, I am back on the web, walking, etc. I am suffering greatly. I don't know if I will make it, I need to be in a Rehab Hospital. Thank you so much, Marla Jo Eshleman Winner
