So I saw the nurse practitioner on Monday. I told her how frustrated I was and how I couldn’t sleep, and the pain was there all the time. She increased my nortriptyline to see if that would help me sleep, and she is going to send me to the Palliative Clinic at the Cancer Center in Strong. They help deal with people who have pain in the end stages of their lives and people who have severe pain. I’m hoping they will be able to help me. They wanted me to go back to the pain center, but I have been there before, and wasn’t impressed. I had a nerve block and a radio frequency ablation and both helped for only a little while. but then the pain came back. I was not impressed with the doctor’s either. However the doctor’s that helped me while I was in the hospital after my last surgery were from the pain clinic and I liked themĀ  a lot. I will see what happens at this clinic and then go from there.
