Baclofen pump

Has anyone else had a baclofen pump fitted? And how successful has it been for spasticity, spasms, leg spasms and leg pain? I am embarking on a trial and would welcome hearing your experiences.

Hi June, I'm Mike Shaw from Sutton Coldfield. I've had a Baclofen Pump fitted for over two years. I have nothing but praise for it. The team at Selly Oak Rehab Unit in Birmingham are superb! It takes a few months to get the levels adjusted but once settled it only means a top up every 5 months. I am quite happy for you to phone me on 0121 686 2415 or Email me on pigcrow@sky.com. Hope to hear from you soon. Mike

Hi June ,
Recommendition, by Mike is good.
If you go on to Everyday Living and put in baclofen pomp in the search engine you wil find out a lot more,as this was a topic last week and nobody had a bad word to say about it.Hope this helps.
Take Care,
Chris.
