Hello, I was going to a pain clinic that was helping with treating my pain. Was on Duragisic patch and Panlor for the breakthrough pain, but the pain was getting worse and i was experiencing painful intercourse which the pain meds did not help at all. That was before my last 2 surgeries.....I am seeing my doc on the 13th for my post op and am hoping she will refer me back there until i can get to an endo specialist. It might take awhile since i will have to travel out of state and need to send records for a review.
You have a very good idea to not only allow yourself to have one approach and that working with pain mngt, gyn, and physc, together is the way to go. Before my other docs just were passing the buck, didnt know what else to do so passed me on to the pain mangt but gave up their part of my care.
I am planning to take DH in with me..i havent taken him in with me yet and told him this time he has to go....i need his support and feel like maybe if she hears it from him she will take me serious. Don't get me wrong DH has been wonderful through this all, i have been the one in the past that hasent let him go with me, thinking i could handle it all.
Sheri: thank you for the links, i took a look at them and feel even stronger that getting to an endo specialist is the way to go.
Thank you all for your wisdom and support
