The Medtronic pain pump regulates the nerve signals going from your feet to your brain and it is used to treat neuropathy. Given that I don't see why it would not be as effective in myeloma caused neuropathy as in other types of neuropathy. Your doctor, however, would know best. Good luck - I hope you find relief from your pain..
Hi, I have a pain pump and a Spinal Cord Stimulator. I know that the pump can help due to it lets the meds go right to the spot on the nerve that is causing problems. Now it might take time for you and your Dr to find the right dose and freq, I have Diladin and a form of novacaine. Altho it does help i am still in great lower back and leg pain. I am now looking at pain transference by cutting my arm, I know that i should not do this but it takes my mind off of my legs and back for a little while. I have been living through this hell for 7yrs now and they just cant get rid of the pain, I feel like im just a number to these Dr's and a payday. I have had 7 surgeries and none have helped me and now there is nothing else they can think of for me but more pills. Well sorry about that but yes I do feel that the pump should help they will do a shot test first and if that goes well then you can go one to the next stage. Good luck ....
