Mr. T, I do wish you the best! And I do hope that the new hospital has a better outlook! I'm sorry that things are so complicated there! Make sure you like the doctor too, that really helps! And it sounds like it might not be a chronic thing, but it still has potential, just stay on top of it, you will find a good doc and hopefully find relief too!!
Unfortunately, some chronic pain, you have to learn to live with, at least to some degree, I know it sounds pretty bad, but don't worry yourself until you talk to a good doc that wants to help and find out what the problem is!! You may have something treatable yet! So, don't worry yourself yet! Stay strong and persistant, you will make it!!
I'm sure others might have more to add, the people here are great, a LOT of different views, and a LOT of support!! Whether it's chronic or not, it's pain, and I wish you some relief!
Best of luck to you, and all!!
