Feeling very frustrated and a bit worried I talked to the Pain Clinic on Friday and I guess I am at the mercy of the one and only specialist that works out of the clinic. Nurse said that he is reviewing the old Drs charts and is deciding who he will take on. I laid it all out there to her about how bad last Sunday was and that I had to take some of my husbands morphine because nothing else would give me relief. She asked me if I had seen a surgeon and I told her that my paper work and test results were sent to Vancouver ( no nero surgeons here ) he sent them back saying there was nothing he could do for me and recommended I go to the pain clinic. Nurse said they were very cautious about who they do surgery on because there was only a 30 to 60 % success rate I told her I was in so much pain that day I would taken those odds. Anyways the Doctor is away this week so it could take about 2 wks before I hear anything. So if you would not mind could you please send some positive thoughts my way I would really appreciate it. Hope you all have had a wonderful Mothers day and a pain free week .
