I have been looking and looking for an article I read in the Washington Post, Sunday April, 2006. Yep thats right 2006. I kept this article because I was so elated when I read it, I decided to try taking it with me on my search for a pm doctor. In 2006, December, the doctor I had been seeing for close to 20 years took a new job that was better for him as he had two children to put thru college.
This was the beginning of about 4 1/2 years of hell. Thankfully I found the doctor I have now and he is great. Anyway back to the subject of the article. I am sure it is possible for this article to be found somewhere on this great thing called the interned.
Briefly, it describes a doctor who was a "up and coming gastroenterologist, a football player, a jock". His life changed completely after he was involved in a auto accident. As he said the one that changed his life and taught him about pain problems, the very hard way.
Please if you get a chance, read his article, he is on the side of the chronic pain suffer. His article made me feel vindicated. I found this article because we are moving and I was looking through papers I was keeping and what I was tossing out. I will alway keep this article, he is a great person and a even greater pm doctor. Of course as I said that was 2006, I pray he is still at it.
