Re: First PM apt next wk

Hello everyone,

I too have another suggestion, the doctor will also ask you what else do you do to try to get your pain down with methods other than pain medicine. For example do you use ice packs, heating pads etc. And may i also suggest Ben-Gay cold therapy, i think its called. You keep it in the freezer and its feels amazing, especially after a long day at work. 8-) Best of luck to you!

Also, don't expect to get 100% relief, its not realistic, if you can decrease your pain by 50% that would be a good goal to set, no doctor will be able to get you completely pain free.
