Hey Peggy,

So sorry to hear you are in such pain. I go for my first appointment at the pain clinic on the 11th of October as well. Your past pain doctors sounds like the last GI who kept telling me that the intestinal blleeding was nothing to worry about and that I had irritable bowel. My new gi that diagnosed Crohn's did not say anything negative about my other doctor, but there was a definite eye roll and she said "well we can just toss these out and start over" referring to my other doctors notes. We should not tolerate this behavior from our care givers, but as we both know, in the days of "managed care" we get stuck sometimes. Take care. Ginny
