Has anyone been to the Mayo clinic?

I have an amazing doctor who has been treating me for my RSD however I feel like we're running out of options and it's not getting any better. My Mom suggested going to the Mayo Clinic to see if they have any ideas. I live in Chicago so the closest clinic is in Minnesota, there will be a lot involved to go travel there, get off work, etc. but am willing to make the trip if it will help. I fell and injured my foot last June, had surgery to repair a ligament, and got RSD from the surgery. I have tried physical therapy, nerve blocks, medications, and I'm still have a lot of problems.

I was hoping if anyone has tried the Mayo Clinic they would be willing to share their experience.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Kelly,

This was about 10 years ago so take it for what it's worth...my doc was also at the point where there were no options left so he asked me to send all my paperwork to the Mayo to see if there would be anything they could do for me. I did and the answer I got was that I'd tried everything they would have done. That's my extent of personal experience with them, but if I were you, I'd at least, do what I did and send your records to them and see what they have to say. Get the name of a doc you can send them to if you go that route. Good luck.

Sharon
