Undiagnosed Pain - Denied 3 times by Mayo
My wife has lived with extreme, debilitating pain in her lower right quadrant for over two years and we don’t know where to go for help.
It started immediately after she had a simple procedure (removal of her Fallopian tubes). We have gone to over 30 doctors and attempted to be seen at the Mayo 3 times.
We still have no diagnosis and I feel that she is losing hope and the will to live. We always read about the wonderful diagnostic capabilities that Mayo has and how they are the one place that can help you find and answer when nobody else can. We have top notch insurance and are still turned down at Mayo saying simply “they can’t help us”. I can’t tell you how disheartening it is to get that news from Mayo. Every time I ask them, “If you can’t help us, then where can we go?”. They respond with “I don’t know, sorry”.
I could understand if she had a diagnosis and there was no known cure, but we are still looking for a diagnosis after 2 years of searching. Now that we have been repeatedly denied access to the top doctors there, we don’t know where to turn to. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
