I went to see another doc in my clinic where my file is and much to my surprise this colleague of my fam doc's renewed my last prescrip for pain meds, after reviewing my 3 inch thick file, same as the last prescrip my fam doc gave me back in april, at the same time she (the other doc) said that they treat people like me by sending them to psychiatrists and that the pain I experience has to do with my perception of the pain. I told her my pain is very real, what am I supposed to do? Learn to live with it she said. Nice eh. Altho she gave me 1 months worth of pain meds like I was taking back in april. My family doc really wants me off the pain meds and on antidepressants and I keep fighting her on it. Same with rehab.
Can anyone here relate? I am really getting tired of doctors treating me like a phych patient. I am loosing faith in the system here.
Any advice, or feedback would be very much welcomed and appreciated.
and btw Thanks for reading and for being here. This is a place where I feel I belong. My heart goes out to each and evry one of you. sincerely Christine Montreal, Qc
Hi Rachel...My name is Christine.....I am brand new here and this is my very
first post...I felt compelled to write you after reading this post....I have

I am 4 months post op from that and am still taking pain medication 4 to 6 times a day. I totally understand you and can't beleive you are still working.....I am unemployed and plan on staying that way until I get fixed.
ps I had a sceduled appointment to see a Gastro Interologist (my Gyno refferred me to him) but my appointment was cancelled afetr waiting a month because of bad weather here last week. I am so sorry that you are all
alone with this..I will pray for you Rachel ok..I only just found this website and am starting to beleive my doctors when they say that it's probably adhesions ..I also saw a urologist two weeks ago and am waiting for the results back from uirinanalysis and a pyelogram.. My heart goes out to you Rachel and will keep you in my thoughts & prayers Christine
