Any experience with Residential Chronic Pain Treatment Programs?
I am in my 12th year of trying to cope with a very disabling post surgical neuralgia near my knee. I am 62 yr old retired physician living in Canada .. My story is posted elsewhere on this site and describes the myriad of physical procedures and psychological approaches that I have tried since 2011. To cap it off I’ve had 4 goes at SCS incl DRG and very recently PNS. It is exceedingly disabling physically and mentally. I’m at the point where my Drs and I think I would best be served by going to a Pain Program that is residential . I’m not really capable of coping in an outpatient situation anymore like the Mayo offers . Does anyone have any experience or advice about where I might find a place like this ? Obviously , it needs to be multidisciplinary ( diet, psychological, medications ,strength and mvt training , possibly some treatment options if available ) with the main emphasis being on coping strategies as I believe I have exhausted most if not all therapeutic options. I need the discipline of inpatient program I believe . I have found one or two online that are perfect ,but are priced for the 0.1%. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
