      Pain Management appointment

      I am very upset. I know there is an opioid crisis but seriously I see that some of this is a money making machine for Dr and insurance companies. It was recommended by the Dr that I have my nerves killed around my left knee Surgery. Then do a pain trial for a pain pump another surgery. In order to do this I need psychological testing more more money. Dr never explained any of the procedures to me or there complications. I been in tears all afternoon. I just don't want to even bother anymore.

      I'm sorry it sounds like they're making you feel like you somehow have to earn pain relief rather than recognizing your suffering. It must be very depressing and tiring to fight this battle over and over. Maybe Sundance's link can point you to a medical advocate so there's someone to provide you with more information and support.

      I found one he charges $3000 for a max 12 hours of work. He has incredible reviews. Now I just need to find the money but I really think its worth a try.
