My back surgeon has mentioned sending me to a pain clinic or a pain
specialist. The scripts I've been on for the last couple of years are
not doing what they used to do (taking them for a couple of years
could also be an issue, huh?) In his defense, he's a great doc and
he's tried me on many other meds, which all had side-effects or just
didn't take care of my pain. I have some fear with doing this. I
don't want someone new to say, "Hey, we should completely change up
your doses or meds and see what happens....again!" I just don't want
to have to deal with any EXTRA discomfort and I know everyone here
totally feels me on that. Any words of wisdom or encouragement...or
discouragement on this?
Thanks to everyone....love you guys!
Far too many so-called "pain specialists" are focused solely on getting
their patients off of opiates, so it pays to do a little research ahead of
time. See if you can find out what their position is on using opiates to
treat chronic pain. Usually you can get that info just by calling the
office number and asking whoever answers the phone if the doctor has any
problem with prescribing opiates when warranted.

shots.Never did a blessed thing.Did it to play their game so they may
prescribe some relief.Never worked,
