Hello everyone, just hoping for any advice or words of wisdom about Apomorphine pumps.
My husband saw his Parkinson's nurse yesterday and due to his rapid deterioration in condition, she has urged him to consider having an Apomorphine pump. He is 55 years old and been diagnosed for 10 years now.
Can anyone let us know how it affects them and their daily life, good or bad? Side effects? Ease of use? My husband currently takes a mixture of Requip, Madopar, Stalevo and Trihexyphendyl daily - can having the pump reduce the oral drug intake?
Lots of questions to start with but would be grateful for any input. He is erring towards asking his consultant for a referral but would like a little more info before pressing the 'go' button.
Thank you for reading.
