I received tremendous help from the pain clinic at Mayo Rochester, was referred there by a spine doctor at Mayo who was very good. You could try that route. I apologize I meant for this response to go to the following comments.

I have Lynch Syndrome but have never had internal cancers. I have had squamous cell skin cancer and sebaceous adenomas. I do go to Mayo for yearly tests and screenings to check for any cancers. I have found you do have to be your own advocate. No one is more concerned about your life and health than you are. I did double check after one of my tests and someone had missed something on a pathology report and it was a big miss, but through my double checking with my doctor, the miss was found and I needed to have surgery which prevented gastric cancer. So, stay on top of it and be persistent. If they don’t like it, maybe you need a different Dr. because I believe a good Dr. would listen and do some checking, which my doctor was willing to do. I believe a good help for all of us with Lynch would be to have a support group. I did go to the Lynch Symposium in Minneapolis one year (2013). It was so helpful. The next year it was in Michigan and I was unable to go. The next year (2015) I never heard about it. Prayers for the strength and guidance you need to
get through everything.

Thank you. I have Lynch and always find any info. such as you gave to be helpful. I would like to hear from other people with Lynch. It feels quite lonely because you don’t hear about too many with the genetic disorder…other than family.
