  • Wanted: Brave Pain Dr --Boston Area

    I am going crazy trying to find a Dr. who is not afraid of writing Prescription Pain Meds!!!
    I TOTALLY realize with all the media attention especially O.C.s have gotten (around my area anyway) that things are bad out there but what about us people in GENUINE PAIN!!!
    Why do WE have to suffer when we NEED this medication??
    Does anyone know of a Boston area DR in Pain Management Practice or a sympathetic Urologist??
    I'm begining to wonder if tere are any.

    Oh there are sympathetic Doctors, there are....but you know how fast paced Boston is. Its not that they don't care--the pace of those Doctor's offices are so brisk. I can't recommend a pain doctor--because I don't use one. i found Doctor Bellin and Doctor Staskin at Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center to be really sweet helpful uros. Staskin isn't the most cuddly, but he warms up as he gets to know you--he is wicked busy, and needed in so many different hospitals....A friend uses Doctor Paul Church, and loves him. If you'd like their numbers, I'd be happy to PM you with them.

    Somewhere there's a reason /Why things go like they do /Somewhere there's a reason /Why some things just fall through /We don't always see them /For what they really are /But I know there's a reason /Just can't see it from this far /Maybe I don't like it, /But I have no choice /I know that somewhere, /Someone hears my voice / I thought I knew it all /I thought I had it made /How could it end this way? /I thought I knew Somewhere there's a reason /Why things don't go my way /Somewhere there's a reason /That I cannot explain /Just like the change of season, /Just may not be my turn /But I know there's a reason, /The lesson's mine to learn

      When I was first getting diagnosed and in so much pain that I was honestly considering suicide, the Dr who saved me was Dr Coukos, at Bay State Urology. He has two offices; Brighton, (at St Elizabeths Hospital) is 617-782-1200; his Watertown office is 617-926-1200. He is very knowlegable about IC and very compassionate and caring. I highly recomend him; at least with me he had no hestation to give me as much pain meds as I needed to control the pain, and he believed me about how painful this disease was for me. I know it is really hard when you are in even more pain than most other IC patients are (as if what most of us deal with isn't already bad enough!) Sometimes it can take very high doses of drugs to control the pain at all, and the pain can really just feed on itself in a truly horrendous way. I honestly think that I would be dead today if it were not for him, and later (when I was much better) I went back and thanked him for saving my life. I hope he will be a blessing for you as well. Good luck with everything! beth_s

I know 1 weekend, I was in terrible pain, and I called the office, and your Dr happend to be on call, and he did call me in a script for pain, though it was not a narcotic..because he did not know me personally....he was willing to help me <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[angel]" />
