I had the strangest dr visit today. First of all, I showed the dr all of my pain sheets and she “read over” 1 of them and then looked all around it until I asked her if she wanted to keep it. She said she didn’t, but she sure would like to have a copy for all her patients to fill out! Good going Chutz!! Ha! I am so glad you suggested we use those sheets! I didn’t have the site on me, but I would have given it to her for her patient’s sake! This is the weird part. She sent me for an MRI on my shoulder that has been really painful for a while, back in December. In January she sent me to the chiropractor at the clinic who said he had no idea why they kept sending me to him as he would not touch my back due to the Syrinx. I then went to see her the next week, still in January and that’s when she upped my pain meds to Percocet 10/325 mg. Today I went in and told her how I can’t move my arm and that the pain I was having in December had gotten "well look at the pain sheets!” She then looked at my file & stopped, closed the file and said, “You have a very seriously torn rotator cuff.” Huh? I asked her what that was and she told me I will need surgery as it is “severe”. I was looking at her like she was crazy when she said she’d get me in to see an orthopedic surgeon. What? What just happened here? My husband was livid. He told her it would have been nice to have been told back in December what was going on and then she wrote me a script for Roxicodone 15mg which I’d never heard of. So, all this to say, I really don’t have faith for her to find a good doctor to do surgery on me! I can’t thank all of you enough for giving me the extra courage I needed to ask for a copy of all of my records and I’m looking for a doctor if there is surgery to be done! Well, at least the police officers got a break today, there wasn’t one on sight!
