  • New to Fort Collins, Co.---need a pain management doctor

    Hi...

    Wow, not too many posts on the Colorado section here.

    I am struggling finding a pain doctor in Northern Colorado. I'd gladly drive to Denver or farther. I've got wicked pain from my IC. I recently moved here and am starting to run low on pain meds. Getting a little nervous....

    ANT suggestions would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Patrick.

    Hi Patrick -

    I'm not sure of how much help I can be, but I go to Dr. David Cahn of Foothills Urology in Golden. He treats my IC & just did my Interstim replacement, but I don't know if he handles pain medication. Another option is the Urology Clinic of Colorado, next to Mile High Stadium. This is a very large practice, and I would expect that they would be able to deal with pain medication protocols.

    Good luck in finding a doctor who can help you.
    IC & fibromyalgia since ~'77. Osteoarthritis since ~'88. Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (autoimmune blood disease) since '96. IBS for who knows how long. Interstim implant 2/04, revised 6/06, replaced 11/12 & again in 9/17. Antibodies to thyroid since at least '92 (finally diagnosed & treated 1/06). Asthma & vocal cord dysfunction 12/06. Hypoglycemia '07. Perimenopausal at 37, menopause at 45. Pituitary & adrenal failure. Osteopenia. Grade 3 sacral fracture by S3-S4 at age 12, healed 14mm out of place.

          Yes...thank you, Chris. I found a pain doctor....Dr. Jan Gillespie, in Ft Collins/Greeley who is working with me. I was starting to get pretty worried there for a while!
