I was diagnosed with Endometreosis (stage 4), and interstitial cystistis 11 years ago. I've had 13 surgeries (non-successful) as there's no cure for this disease. I've tried everything from surgeries, to holistic, to "specialists"; and for the past 5 years I've been on Percocet 10/325 which doesn't even put a dent in the pain anymore. I'm a Firefighter/EMT and have been part-time now due to the pain for almost 5 years. I desparately want to have managable pain so that I can return to work full-time. I've traveled to N.C, D.C., FL, and AZ. seeking help, participating in studies for individuals where the disease has progressed as far as mine, to no avail. I reside in Michigan just outside of Ann Arbor. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you so very much for your time. I wish you all a healthy and happy recovery.
Hi Desparate for Help,
I also suffer from chronic pain and live in Michigan. So you've been to U of M with no help and St Joe's, no help there either?
Have you tried Sparrow (in Lansing) Pain Clinic? Give them a call. Just to see if they are taking new patients, and whatever you do, do not ask about pain meds on the phone, anytime you call ANYONE, don't ask on the phone, as they will shut you down immediately!!
Let me do some research and get back to you, OK? It may take a little while, but I may be able to find some place for you!!!
sweet lemon Thanks Mary for the heads up on Desparate for Help!!
