Following your surgery, you will likely feel some discomfort at both incision sites (in your back and your abdomen) for several days. You may experience a headache for a few days.
Your doctor may prescribe medication to relieve the pain caused by surgery and antibiotics to prevent infection. If you notice any swelling, pain, or redness near your incision, notify your doctor.
After the surgery, your doctor may recommend that you restrict your activity. This allows time for scar tissue to form and anchor the catheter in place. It’s important to remember that even after the initial healing period, some activities may cause wear on your catheter. Talk to your doctor for more information.
You will begin receiving therapy as soon as your pump is filled with drug and programmed. Your doctor will adjust the delivery of medication to achieve a balance between pain relief and managing side effects.
