I have never been treated by your facility(ies), I am of the impression this was a general questionnaire for pain sufferers.

My condition is such that several doctors have told me to wait until I was incontinent before I went for surgery, as I would likely need surgeries and meds the rest of my life.

I was hoping you are offering some different advice/suggestions.
