The history suggests you have extremely severe pain on left ischial tuberosity. You are unable to sit for more than few minutes and may be able to walk for a short distance. You have tried all treatment options except pump. You probably had all radiological studies such as MRI, CT Scan and X-Ray. I would suggest you should consult an experienced Pain Specialist who is Board Certified in Pain Management. The diagnosis of cause of pain is important. In most cases removal of cause removes chronic pain. Pain pump is a last option of treatment for chronic pain. The pain pump is considered when all other options of treatment have failed and you are not addicted to opioid. Pain pump is expensive and safe. Please consult a pain specialist for further investigations and options of treatment. Only few pain specialists are experienced in management of pump patients.
