A few months ago I underwent a trial for a drug pump . During the trial I had an adverse reaction to the drug . I had previously told my doctor I was allergic to a grocery list of muscle relaxers , pain relievers and narcotics . When I expressed concern about the negative reaction I had experienced , I was told it was from the anesthesia etc . I was told since the narcotic would be going directly into my spinal canal , I would be okay with a drug I knew I could not handle intravenously . I have never been able to tolerate the original drug , dilaudid . They switched me to another drug , fentanyl . I also could not tolerate this drug . Now I am looking at having to pay my portion of cost to remove this drug pump which comes to $ 1 , 500 . Is this some sort of medical negligence ?
