Post Surgery Ramblings

I am a bit dopey, but my mind keeps composing a blog, so I had to grab the laptop and type.

The surgery took a bit longer than expected, but my doctor was able to remove all of catheter tubing, anchors, and the pump at the end of it.  I apparently bit my lip during it too, and came out of it with a girdle.The Tawny Girdle

Years ago, I did some research on intrathecal baclofen pumps and ran across studies that included information on why people had their pumps removed.

Back then, I had my Codman pump with no issues.  I couldn’t imagine any reason would be good enough to remove a pump.  The benefits would far outweigh any of those listed in the research, I thought then.

While I was waiting to be wheeled to surgery, I marveled at the shift in my perspective from then to now.  It took a lot of reasons, instead of just one, to decide to remove this Medtronic pump.  And now it is removed.

Let the recovery begin!
