Does anyone have experience with pain management clinics? I have my first appt at the end of this month. I really don't know what to expect. I have a super high tolerance to pretty much everything the hospital has given me so they have sent me out to have it managed so I can be monitored better.
The problem is chronic abdominal pain, nobody can figure out why, I have had my gallbladder and appendix removed, I have heard everything from it could be IBS to it could be adhesions from all the surgeries. I have tried Dilaudid, Oxycontin, Oxycodine, and have also tried the more mild anti-inflammatory type like high dose ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.
Does anyone have experience with these types of places? Should I write down everything that is involved with my pain like I can't sleep, I can't drive bc if I start hurting I can't move around and that gives me anxiety, etc. ? I just don't know what I should be prepared to tell them, I want them to know what needs to be controlled but don't want to whip out a huge list if it won't matter
