Hi Kelly, I was referred back in 2004, went to the pain clinic, found out the plan, the cost, and had to refuse. MY Gastro has referred me to OHSU to the pain clinic for the Celious Plexis Block, but again no ins. to pay for it. I did have 2 scans last week, and had to pay 1368.00 out of my pocket right there on the spot OUCH!! That was including a 300.00 discount but the discount could only be used on that date. So slowly goes our small savings again. I see my Gastro this Mon. the 20th for my results from both scans and pray that he can give me info. I totally agree that my pain should be assessed but again the cost is a killer! Every time I see my Gastro he shakes his head at me and always says I am so sorry that there is nothing to help you yet. He always encourages me to research, and if I find something that may have a positive result to let him know and he will go over it with/for me. Thanks for the suggestion, and for your support. That is what I love about this website, everyone is helpful, caring, listens, and gives great advice, and suggestions. One day someone will have a surgery, treatment, be in a clinical trial, or find "THE" Doctor that will find the CURE, and train other Surgeons how to do the procedure. We will all be well. We will be writing to say what we CAN DO, where we have been, going to ballgames, and recitals, choir, and music programs etc. We will sit in the rocking chair and rock our first Grandchild, and we will be well, and all will be good! :) Cheryl.   > Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2009 18:10:02 -0500
