@bikerchicl, I visit Mayo in Rochester MN every year. A couple years ago Mayo suggested I go through their pain management program. You do have to stay in town during this time.
Before committing to this program, check with your insurance company. Mine, Blue Cross, would not pay for this. Needless to say I wasn’t able to afford to go through this program so I can’t comment on it at all.
As I said, I visit Rochester routinely, every 3 months. I’ve been watching new buildings going up across the street from St Marys hospital where the pain management program is at. Somebody at the hospital told me that these buildings were for lodging for patients in this program. You should call and inquire about this if MN is your destination.
Wishing you the best, hope you can find answers.
