...his second...surgically implanted under his skin next to his bellybutton that automatically doses his spinal cord with Baclofen.

It's supposed to reduce the spasticity in his legs. He has Cerebral Palsy.

There is a modicum of info on the web about Baclofen. I sure don't remember ever seein anything related to using it for HA.

How is is to be administered to you?

The Bolus dosage they gave Adam prior to the pump installation made this stiff little guy a noodle...limp to the extreme.

I can't imagine how it would help CH....of course... I also do not understand why I get Zenith commercials on my Magnavox TV....or three words of Drummer's post about Medicos description of CH.

Big help I am huh?

Keep us informed.

Let yer light shine.
