I agree with Cindy's response. You need to find a pain management physician who treats abdominal and pelvic pain. You will get injections. Some help more than others but eventually don't work. I've RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) that does seem to help the pain. But tonight and for the last few weeks I've had a very painful partial block come and go (more come than go) and nothing is doing much. Even my pain meds only give me partial and short lived relief. I go in again Monday morning. Maybe she can pull a rabbit out of her hat! Anyway, call around and find one who does pain maintenance. They exist. If you do find one, you'll probably sign a contract with them. Be very careful to stick to the terms of your contract. They'll boot you out in a minute if you violate it. Anyway, find a doctor. They do exist!! Sara
