Hello.

You need to speak with your doctor and tell him/her that you are still in pain. You may need to see a pain management specialist that can offer treatments to help reduce your symptoms.

I pray you can get answers and relief soon.

I have to go with Dave on that, you need to speak with your primary care physician. Until you do get a Pain Management Specialist, your first and only choice is your PCP.

Talk to him/her about how the pain is effecting you now, and how the med's you take now, are just not strong enough for this pain! Ask them to help you, as you are still suffering intense pain.

No one should just suffer in silence, speak out, tell your doctor!

I wish you luck!!!

LIVE LONG-LOVE WELL!!!
