HI Linda, thanks for your response :) I live in Oregon. I did get hooked up with a comprehensive pain clinic. I had to go in to take a paper test for 2 hours. By the time I was done, I was in a full blown episode barely able to drive home. They set an app't. for me. It would be with 4 different Dr's. for 4 hours at a time. Most of the procedures I have already had. The day before they called and said it would cost me $80.00 a visit even though they were accepting my secondary ins. and Medicare. We don't have the extra money, so I had to cancel. I had an Upper Endoscopic Celiac Plexus Block done in Jan. of this year 2010. It has really rocked my world! I now have adhesion pain on my right side and as always my left. When I go into MAJOR episodes where I am writhing in pain, doubled over, sobbing, feeling stabbed, like I am being twisted inside, deep aching etc. I can now go in for I.V. Therapy. I do take Oxycodone 5 mg. no acetaminiphine, 15 mg. every 4 hours 20 mg. if really bad. I also take Methadone 20 mg. AM and PM. Plus nausea meds. The IV therapy is done in a medical setting where they do Cancer treatments, antibiotic treatments, and now adhesion treatments. I am usually given 1-2 bags of Saline Solution for dehydration, a stronger nausea med, and Dilauded. It calms me down and helps me relax and does ease my pain a bit. It doesn't take the pain away, but it ends up being a bit better than it was. I don't have the funds to return to Germany but, someday I will be able to afford to return. I am happy to hear that your Therapy is working for you :) God Bless, and thx for listening. Cheryl D.   > Date: Sat, 11 Sep 2010 19:06:12 -0500
