Thursday we finally got to the pain clinic in Orangeville, a 2 hour drive with stops for coffee and gas. At least that's better than a 4 hour drive to London! I have no idea why there isn't one up here in Collingwood or Owen Sound. And it boggles my mind to realize that none of the 59 or so medical professionals we've talked to over 2+ years was aware of this opportunity for patients suffering long term pain.
We found the doctor very helpful. He described the options and which ones would probably work well for me. We came away with a complex cream made of 5 different pain-killing ingredients, in proportions to suit me. It's too early to know how well this will work, but even if it doesn't I'm now confident we're doing our best to treat this pain, so I'm pleased.
