    Hey guys! I have had a baclofen pump for about two years. I had spasms so bad that I couldn't even get in my chair some times and when I did the spasms almost made me jump out of my chair. The baclofen pump for me is a godsend. I would not be able to be independent whatsoever without it. The new baclofen pumps are half of the thickness of the old ones! They also have another model that contains almost twice as much baclofen but they are about the same size as the old ones which are the size of a hockey puck. The smaller sizes are possible because of the battery technology that allows for a much smaller battery. I have fortunately had no problems with mine so far, but even if I did I would definitely recommend one to anybody who suffers from bad spasms that are uncontrollable by oral meds.
