I'm sorry to hear that you're still suffering, but very happy that you'll hopefully find a more sympathetic doctor(s) at the new practice. I once had a doctor in emerg who wanted to give my infant son a spinal tap, but I knew that it couldn't actually help resolve his current issue, but might "be helpful" to the doctors "next time", if he ended up having a recurrance (he never did). The letter that the doctor sent back to my GP referred to me as a "difficult mother". On another occasion, a specialist saw me and reported to my GP that I "didn't understand what she was telling me", when the truth was that I understood her perfectly, but didn't agree with her conclusions! I agree that doctors should not report their opinions about a patient in their reports, but just stick to medical facts.

Good luck!

As I wrote in another post I still have some discomfort, but the severe pain I was in earlier this year has receded, thank goodness. My CRS put me back on Rectogesic, and I'm due to see him again in late August, as far as I know. Thanks for asking.
