I can barely walk much less dance, but dam I sure used to b able to scoot-a-boot! My Baclofen pump has helped out a little in that arena. What about u.?

    The Baclofen pump is alright. It makes my life better, but I went through more then most getting mine. I have not had any out of pocket cost and actually it is cheaper for me because the refill is considered a medical procedure so Medicare pays all of t with no co-pay.

    Give me a shout if you want more information.
