I generally don't speak ill of a specific medical provider/institution, but I have to chime in on the Mayo recommendation. I live about 3 blocks from Mayo, and that's the last place I'd recommend to anybody with pain issues. They take an ultra-conservative approach to pain, and if you so much as ask for an aspirin, they want to run you through treatment. I had a doctor at Mayo tell me stright out that Mayo's philosophy is to use pain meds post-op for a short time, or if you're lying in the ER after having been splattered all over the highway. Aside from that, they don't like to prescribe pain meds. In fact, they consider pain patients to be failures on their part, because they have the belief they can cure just about anything. They do great work - don't get me wrong, but they are seriously lacking when it comes to dealing with CP patients.
