    Chronic pain and recurring Hernias

    Another update. I had several nerve blocks that were unsuccessful. I took Valentin for months and it did nothing but make me tired. On top of that my new hernia is getting worse. I have been waiting since January to see Dr Martindale up at ohsu who is the dept head. My appt is still not until March 5th. Last week I had day where I could bArely stand up from the pain T the sight of the new hernia but it lessened. Then today I had a horrible sharp pain that caused me to cry out and not move. I was finally able to relax and lay on the couch and the rest of the day has been ok. Painful but bearable. I am worried I can’t wait until March 5th but I don’t want to just see any surgeon after Ll I hAve been through. Any advice on how to get in sooner?I never dreamed 2 years ago my life would be such a nightmare
