Re: wonderful doctor gone
Yes, I was. I wish there was a way for other patients to help each other out. He was a tireless advocate of pain relief but there is no one to help us as we struggle to find other pain doctors. I know he did not want to leave us like this.
I went through years of bad experiences and doctor after doctor giving up on me. When I found him, I finally began to trust there was one compassionate doctor. He kept telling me that even if I moved out of Houston, he would still help me. He worked with individuals from all over the US and even from other countries.
He would not want us to suffer like this. I have tried my PCP with no success I was scheduled to see him yesterday so I am out of meds.I work full time and he helped me handle my disabling pain. I just found out Wednesday evening that he had died. He always said "life is not for amateurs" and you don't get a medal for suffering.
