I was looking online at my health record of tests,procedures,exams and office visits of what my health insurance actually paid for. And was looking specifically at my 3 Intrathecal morphine pump trials. Which was supposedly 3 different "pain pump trials" of trying different pain medicines out that could be used in the Intrathecal pump,which are specifically either Morphine,Hydro morphine or Fentanyl. Each one of the 3 trials required a 24 hour observation stay at the hospital of each particular procedure.. My 1st trial was done at a big city hospital. I had adverse reactions to the medicine causing urine retention and spinal headache.. My 2nd trial was done at a small city hospital where seeing the Amish walking the halls are the norm. Again,I had adverse reactions/side effects to the medicine causing urine retention and spinal headache.. I ask one the nurses if this was common and she said yes Then I said more than 50% and she shook her head insinuating yes and much more! My 3rd trial was done at the same small city hospital And again,I had adverse reactions/side effects to the medicine causing urine retention and spinal headache.. Now back to the original topic What was the differences of the 3 trials? After looking at each of the trials and costs,I became extremely upset over what I've uncovered. 1st off The 1st trial costs were 4 times the costs of the remaining 2 trials! The 1st trial they used actual Morphine. The remaining 2 trials they used epidural steroids! In my eyes this is malpractice on every angle! Steroids are definitely not supposed to be used in an "Intrathecal Morphine Pump Trial" as the at least the primary medicine But somehow between the Doctor/provider and insurance company, they pulled these bogus trials off! How can 3 different medicines cause the same adverse side effects? What can I do?
