I Have A Pain Pump And My Personal Therapy Manager Is Telling Me A Code 8503 Physician Bolus In Progress. Can Anyone Tell Me What This Really Means?

Answer

I was unable to find anything on a 'code 8503'. A bolus in medical terms simply refers to the admininistration of something designed to increase its levels in your body - which in your case would appear to refer to increasing the level of your pain medication. Is that what they did?
