Personally after all the phone calls to the various drs, the witch dr is sounding better and better. Good grief, what in the world is going on in these drs offices and why in the heck did the PM dr cancel your appt with the surgeon. Talk about the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. No wonder you are fed up, then to have this incredible pain on top of it. ER may be the place to head to since everything so far has been a bust.
Well, I am not really sure what to even post here, I am still sorting out the dr thing,lol. And these are the people we are suppose to have confidence in, yeah right.
I am sorry all of this is going on with you FJ. Wish I could do something to help you out. I lost my magic wand a while back and I have not been able to find that thing since. I think one of the dogs ate it.
Let us know what direction you plan to go with this thing hanging out of your incision.
Frances, to top it off tonight, I am recharging my SCS. I can't hardly stand the recharger on the incision site. I have placed a soft cloth between the recharger and the skin to try and make it bearable. I have been running my SCS almost 24 hours a day. With no pain meds (just 1 7.5/500 at night) I have no options. I know my PCP will address that as soon as he gets back as he does not agree with the Quackologist but we signed the pain contract. Now that that is nolonger in effect, the PCP can step back in.
Susie, I could use the magic wand. Maybe I can follow your dog around and see what is left behind. You might remember that I am not able to get into another PMS as I am on WC from another state and Drs in Oregon won't take out of state WC patients. Even my PCP told me that if I wan't already established with him, he would not be able to take me. I live in a small community of 15,000 and they are building a medical school here. I am going to get on the waiting list and see if be a training aid. I don't have options at this point for doctors.
