hi all

hope this is in the correct place - if not moderators please move....

i have finally seen someone who will refer me to pain clinic......i have severe endometriosis and the latest surgery looming for me is removal of part of bowel which is glued down and high risk of colostomy bag - i have 2 year old twins so told him this surgery will have to be put on hold at present time........also coming to grips (or not due to hand weakness !!!!) with fibro - i kicked my toe on chair today and my whole foot is throbbing OUCH..........anyway, told him about the endo pain and fibro pain and he is referring me to pain clinic...

can anyone explain or tell me what i can expect at one of these? as have heard some good and bad stories.

i went to my first pain clinic yesterday.
Not sure if all hospitals run it the same way, i have to go for 8 weeks and we do 2 hrs at a time.
The first day was talking about how fibro effects our every day living.
There were 5 of us there, there were meant to be 6 but one could not make it.
Will let us know more as time goes on.
Have you a date for you pain clinic yet?
