Sorry to hear of your frustrations.

Curious as to why no Ketamine?
I have full body. Saw Dr. S + that is my chance at getting better. I just tried a Lidocaine Infusion. Praying it lasts.

Take care long have you been going to Dr. Schwartzman and how many visits have you had? My husband only had one appointment with him last year.

We would probably consider the Ketamine Coma if we had a way of paying for it. I wonder why Dr. Schwartzman didn't suggest lidocaine. Maybe because the plan was to go ahead with inpatient low dose ketamine infusion. Of course insurance won't pay for it.

The pain management doctor we have been seeing for a year and a half is kind of a jerk. He is a bit arrogant and doesn't seem too interested in helping. He implanted the pump in April. The dose started at 1 and we just got it to 6. It took 7 months. The doctor just says he doesn't want my husband to build up a tolerance so he doesn't want the dose too high. The problem with changing doctors is nobody wants to deal with the pump because they didn't put it in.

It is just so frustrating. No, it's maddening. Thanks for your replies.

Tracey -I didn't see Dr. S the post before me did and they also had the lidocaine infusion. Donna
