Visit to the Gastroenterologist

We went to the gastroenterologist yesterday. He gave her a prescription for domperidone. I drew a blank at the first three pharmacies. The FDA has not approved this drug. It is used in other countries. There is a cardiac arrest risk. I think it is pretty low and may be associated with the IV application.

He also wants her to have an x-ray with barium. That is scheduled tomorrow.

We have an appointment with another pain clinic on Monday. Hopefully they will have some options for the compression fractures.

  1. Jerry: Has the Pain Clinic tried the Lumbar Nerve Dennervation (Burning)?

    My husband, Bob, has a Compression Fracture in the L1 and Degenerative Tissue in the L4 & L5, which are worsened by the MM. The burning has eliminated the pain, and is supposed to last for 12 - 18 months.

    We tried many medications, back brace, etc. before this....and wish this had come first.

    Much luck on getting Rebecca's pain under control.
