Bring all of your records together, copies of your doctor's written reports of your medical problems especially operation reports, test results, etc. You have the right to copies from any doctors you have seen, copy pages from the adhesions site ( look at back e-mails from Helen Dynda about pain and other topics relevant to your situation, print them out, lots of them, type up a cover letter explaining your problems, keep it thorough but as short as possible. Present yourself to your chosen doctor or pain management clinic and go through this board to find a good one, any old doctor will not do, a bad doctor or pain management place is worse than none. When you have you appointment remain calm, but firm and describe your level of pain. Good luck. It's hard. Look at the adhesion web site for information. You can spend weeks searching and still keep finding good information and it's time well spent. With kindest regards, Sally Grigg wrote: >
