Hi, The same thing happened to me. I'm trying to find another doctor. I won't accept chronic pain diagnosis, and docs giving up on me, this soon after surgery (I am 4 weeks post-op). I will keep looking til I find someone who HEARS me and is honest with me, and is willing to try to help me. And if I had more energy I would be writing a slew of complaints about each Dr. I have seen who is a hypocrite to their hypocratic oath. Hugs, Gina
