I really dont know what to do now. I finally broke down and called my primary again two days ago to tell him that the pain wasnt getting any better and I really needed something done about this. Well, he told me that I should call the Dr that did the biopsy and I should follow up with him since he caused this whole pinched nerve deal. Well. I did. I called and I made an appt with him.
I went in today and the first thing he tells me is : so, you are still a little sore? I wanted to hurt him so bad right then and there! No, Im not sore! Sore is what you are after excecizing! This is NOT sore! This is PAIN!
But he proceeds to tell me he has never had a patient go back two months after still complaining of pain. Perhaps its becasue Im young and dont deal with pain as well as an adult? That made me soooo mad! I may be young but I am NOT a child! And I am NOT making this up or exagerating it! uugggghhhh! Just thinking about it makes me mad.
But anyway, he told me I should just use a heat pad. It should help with the 'discomfort' a little. And if its not better in a month or two, give him a call and he will maybe run some tests, like a bone scan.
But meanwhile, I just have to deal with it!
Does that make any sense!?!?!?! Am I the only one that finds it wrong?!?!?!
Either way, my primary doesnt really want to followup on this issue becasue it should be the other dr's responsibility and I really cant say I blame my primary for thinking that way.
But anyway, I am left with no meds. I run out tomorow. I really dont think pcp is going to refill them. And I know the biopsy doc wnt give me any meds either. So Im left with no pain management and nowhere else to go.
I am taking an anti-inflammatory that my osteopathic doctor prescribed for my costo (which is very flared up) but nothing else.
I dont know what to do. I am going to call my pcp and explain to him what happened and hopefully he will understand and do something to help. But if he insists about me following up with the other doctor then I know Im screwed.
So we'll see.
Im sooooo depressed and upset about this though. I thought it was bad enough already, but I guess I was wrong. It can always get worse, which isnt a good thing.
Oh well... thanks for leting me vent here. I appreciate you guys listening.
Lots of Love and Gentle Hugs!
