    to have casual conversation. Bad mistake. Too many angry folks that need to get out fishing more. Just be nice. Being an American means we can have different ideas on the same subject. If you disagree, then so be it. Its not all about apple pie, pickup trucks, country music, and AK-47s. Don't be an un American idiot.

    I'd like to tell everyone about my intrathecal pain pump. Those of you living with chronic pain or who know someone who is need to know about this gizmo. Medicare paid for mine (it's $20K otherwise). A device about the size and shape of a snuff can is surgically implanted in the abdomen with a catheter running inside the body into the spine in back. Any of several liquids can be used in the pump. I use morphine. The device consists of a pump, reservoir and computer.
    Why is all this good? Because it bypasses the blood/brain barrier allowing less than a twentieth of an oral dose to control pain. For example, I was taking 45 mg/day of oral morphine sulphate time-release pills. On "the pump" I get 7/10 of one milligram per day with better pain control and less burden on liver and kidneys. I go in every 3 months for a refill via hypodermic into a port on the side of the gizmo.

    I could easily look this up but I figured I'd just ask for the sake of friendly conversation,how do you refill the reservoir if it's inside you?

    small rubber port on the flat side - hypo inserts thru that. BTW patient can't control the dose. Doc programs it remotely By putting small reader next to abdomen and making changes that way.
    My doc is Kevin Smith, M.D. at Interventional Pain Ctr. here in SD.

    This thread even has a good title for a casual conversation thread " I stepped into the lounge..." Feels almost like your stepping into a room for a friendly chat. As long as this doesn't devolve into a political circle jerk I think it would make a great place to talk to others about interesting topics. Fishing related or otherwise

    You make it seem so nice and relaxing.
    Here is what probably should be posted before anyone enters the Lounge. Ha ha :)

    There's nothing wrong with the Lounge. It's pick and choose at will. Get involved, get rear-ended. I think Dano constantly reminds everyone what they're in for. I know I do. Clearly, it never works.
