Update. So I am going to my 2nd pain mgmt appt on Thursday to a local hospital. Got a referral from my pcp. 1st pain mgmt place only wanted to give me nerve blockers. Didn't do it because they had never tried it on a Crohns patient and the upkeep would be too time consuming and painful. I'm really nervous about this appt, I'm just hoping the doc can help me out. Tired of being in pain and getting belittled by my gastro. I understand his stance but there is no need to treat me like a degenerate. I hope there is relief on the horizon.
Thanks all for your support!
