Pain Management Anyone??

Okay gals, here's the skinny on my situation.

I have this pain my my right side, went to the DR, had a bunch of tests done only to determine there is no reason for the pain, except for nerve damage. DR said there is nothing they can do for that except to control the pain, so I'm supposed to go see a Pain Management Specialist.

My question is, has anyone ever seen one of these people? and what should I expect and what questions should I ask?

Thanks ladies!

Pain Management Anyone??

Hi Katie
I personally have not had to see a pain specialist, but I have a close friend who does. There are good ones, and there are bad ones.
My friend's specialist has tried every method known to man (drugs), before implanting a nerve stimulator in my friend's back. This seems to be helping.

I've read of other sisters having problems with pain specialists, because they are against prescribing narcotics (which we all know are sometimes necessary).

I am wishing you the best, and I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Thanks for your reply Tam! I hope you are doing well.

My DR says this one he's sending me to is the best and he thinks he will inject an nerve blocker into the area, eliminating the pain. I hope this is the case, I'm sick of taking vicodin. It doesn't even seem to have an effect on me anymore.

I am usually just a lurker but I wanted to reply to your post. I see a pain management specialist for other health issues and I love him. He was the first dr to believe that I was in pain and didn't tell me to go home a live with it.

I have nerve damage down my right side, neck, back, leg and right side of c-section incision. I did the nerve block and it was heaven for my head and neck and leg and the c-section site. If you are still having trouble and this is the choice that the dr thinks is right for you, go for it. I actually reduced the amount of percocet that I was taking.

I have an unusually amount of nerve damage but the nerve block helped for a good 3 months, on everything but my c-section site which I have not had anymore trouble with at all.

Hope this helps and I hope you find some pain relief soon.

Pain Management Anyone??

there are pain management teams in a lot of hospitals. they came to visit me before and after my hyst. they are aware of a lot of options that other doctors might not know of. for example, i had a pain pump in my IV after two of my 3 c sections. did not work well. I told them about this, and instead they put in an epidural pump for my hyst. it was much better pain relief.
