Dr. Criado in Michigan
Newly diagnosed after 3 years of chronic pain. Saw Dr. Criado at the university of Mich. and he is recommending surgery. Has antone had experience with him? I have been to 6 physical therapist over the years with no relief and haven't found a pain med that works. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone, name is Dave and I'm new to the group. Thanks in advance for all of the consideration and support!I have bilateral neurogenic TOS and I'm about 8months post-op from a thoracic outlet decompression with first rib-resection. I required this operation unfortunately due to nearly 80% compression of my artery at theoutlet...severe pain, weakness, blood flow issues, and feeling dead cold...
I am on disability for the TOS. I want to go back to work, but the pain is still bad even after my surgeries. What professions do people with this syndrome have? The doctors say this doesn't really get better, you just have to work around it. I just want to know in what ways are other people working with this condition?thank you

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
