    Hi, I  had an accident ten years ago, two ruptured thoracic discs caused spinal cord compression, for which I had emergency surgery, then a fusion the following year. I'm due to have an intrathecal pain pump soon, the problem is that I have a large incisional abdominal hernia, the doctors appear to be undecided about if to fix that first or place the pump & then sort out the hernia, any thoughts would be great please.

    Wow....All I can I say is good luck on two surgeries one following right the other. With some luck you'll have relief in two areas soon; your back and your abodmen.
