Angry I need your help!!!!

Does anyone know of a good website I can go to , to look for a good specialist in pain management, or a back specialist,or a ortho surg. or etc. in my nearby area. OR......even somewhere that I could fly to and back the same day? I need to go to someone who is the best of the best....$$$$ not an object.
I have already had all the epiderals, and surgery, and pt and la de da,
its worse, not better, not even a little.....a bunch worse, whatever they did, well lets just put it this way....the pain I used to have don't even compare.
So, I have made it my mission to get this damn back pain resolved before the end of the year. Please....please!!!!!!!!! any help, any will help.

Re: I need your help!!!!

SO wish I could help because you sound like I feel! Would recommend the folks I now see (though we're still working on getting me straight) but I'm down south. Well, just in case you decide to come my way, I know 2 who have additional spine fellowships; one is a Neurosurgeon named Omar Jimenez and the other is an Orthopedic surgeon named Stephen James. I hope you are able to find someone awesome in your area....good luck!

Re: I need your help!!!!

Michael Stanton Hicks in Chagrin Falls is one of the most noted pain physicians in the U.S. There is also the Pain Care Institute in Cincinnati that has a few recognized docs.

Hope that helps.

Re: I need your help!!!!

Hi there
I remember posting with you before you ever had surgery Goodness what happened to you? Unfort. I am in TX so that is not close to you either. But what has happened since your surgery to make you worse girl? I remember you were having issues in several places like me, I have had 4 lumbar surgeries and now having to have a cervical fusion in a few weeks and I did not bargain for this at 34 so I know how you feel. Things are not going well here either. But the doc I have now is just trying to revise the disaster that I have had for 12 years.,Please post back.

Re: I need your help!!!!

Shelly,
sorry to hear things aren't going well for you either. I don't know what happened here, all I know is that I recovered from my "surgery" to find out that ok, now my surgery site doesn't hurt anymore, but my back pain is still there and this time its worse. This is so ******* me off. I am literally on a misssion. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm so frustrated. I am going to see a Rhuematologist tomorrow and having another epidural on thursday to see if it will work now that I have had my surgery, so who knows.
Anyway, I basically am gonna play the rule out game, and I don't care how many Dr I have to see, I m gonna see as many as it takes till I see one that will listen and can pay attention.
Take care of you :-)

Cincy,

Fill me in a bit more on your condition. What kind of pain, where is it located, how long, and what care have you received? These would be helpful in finding out how to help you!
