Hello. I'll try to keep a VERY long story short, for now. I am a chronic pain sufferer (back, pelvis) of 14 years. After years of uncaring, unresponsive doctors, and being accused of drug seeking and addiction, I finally found an MD who listened and cared. We tried many things, but finally landed on a combination on meds that worked. I have been functioning well for 5+ years now, with good pain control. Problem is, my doctor took a new position outside of Mayo and is no longer available to me. Now I am back to where I was 14 years ago, with doctors in Austin either refusing to consider continuing my meds or refusing to see me entirely. We have checked with other Mayo outlets, same story. I have been thru pain clinics twice, they don't work for me. Why is it so hard to find an open minded doctor at Mayo, who believes that sometimes you just have to treat the pain itself?? Is there ANYBODY at Mayo that will listen??
