I've heard different opinions about
pain docs. I've always kept the idea of seeing one in the back of my mind if my pain ever becomes unmanageable. I think they are like a lot of docs - they are great if you get a good one, but there are also not so great ones out there. I think it would be a good idea to see one if your pain isn't under control. They will probably talk about
med options as well as other techniques to control pain.
Let us know what you decide and how things go if you do decide to go to one.
