    Managing chronic pain is an industry in itself. And I don't know if you're in the US the UK or somewhere else because all of that makes a difference. I am in the US and we are in an opiate addiction crises here. And because of that rules, guidelines and laws are being passed everywhere without the consideration of chronic pain patients. So consequently these pain patients are not getting the opiates that they've been on to control their pain. And many have even got to the point of committing suicide because they can't stand the pain and no doctor will give them the medicine they need.

    So as you can see trying to control pain is difficult. And unfortunately in the US pain does not seem to be considered a disease itself but addiction does. Go figure.

    One way I manage my pain other than using opiates was to join chronic pain groups. They give you support and you even get ideas from others on what others have tried. There are a few on Facebook if you use Facebook some of them are great some of them have little activity. There is also a group that I belong to that has nothing to do with Facebook and I think it's awesome. Groups are places to go and vent when you're really hurting or to offer your support when someone else is hurting. I cannot post the name of that site on here for it will be deleted by the monitors. However if you would like the name of that group I'd be happy to email it to you. Just let me know if you want it.

    BTW I have never heard of microcirculation. Can you tell me what it is?

    Laurenn,, I developed pudendal neuralgia after a hysterectomy abscess in 1996. I tried everything from medications, surgery, cryosurgery, radiofrequency, injections, neurostimulator, & intrathecal pain pump. The only thing that relieved my pain is the stem cell paste injection. Dr. Todd Melania of Scottsdale, Arizona harvested millions of adipose stem cells (fat tissue) from my abdomin through a mini-liposuction. Then he separated & counted the stem cells through computerized equipment. Next he formed the stem cells into a paste without added enzymes or other substances. The stem cells were injected into my damaged pudendal nerve & bulging disc. The stem cells will remain at the injection site for 2years. They will be healing & fighting inflammation. After receiving stem cell paste injection in January, I was able to wean off my pain pump in February. After receiving a stem cell paste injection into my lower back disc, I no longer have back pain & sciatica. The cost is far less than expensive knee and back surgery. These stem cells can also grow new cartilage in joints! Dr. Malan is the first physician worldwide to treat pudendal neuralgia with stem cell paste injection. Take care....Peggy Rogers

      Amkooffee,

      It would be best for you to call the clinic. I paid for a package deal. It included staff, anesthesia, & doctor fees. I do know that you have options as far as treatment. You can have only the stem cell paste injection or injection /iv stem cells. I don't want to misquote the cost. You can also set up a phone consult with Dr. Melan free of charge. He will not pressure you into making a decision. Dr. Malan will answer your questions along with the cost. I'm thrilled with my results. It beats surgery & medications. Take care....Peggy R.

      I looked him up online and the one I found is a plastic surgeon. Is that the correct Dr? His site did say something about stem cell but for breast augmentation.
