Good evening *hugg* It is always good to hear from you. I am sorry to hear about the pain increases. Are you having the "trigger" injections or Epidurals? Are they working well for you? I sure hope they are especially after the extra hassle from the nurse.
I don't talk to nurses about my care. At all. Only a select few, who are more like friends, at the spine center. I have known them 2yrs now. Aside from those three I don't discuss my health. Not even the receptionist. If I get a nosey new nurse, I just side step his or hers attempts to talk about my problems. It isnt any of their business. It isnt like they turn around and speak what you just said to the doctor either. They just being nosey. The last nurse to become aggressive with me was fired before my next appointment. I reported the behaviour right away. As far as I am concerned... just get the vitals recorded and move along!
I really think you should report the behaviour. No reason to be spoken to or treated in that manner. Most certianly not from someone who you pay to do a service for you. Normally the nurses have a coordinator or supervisor. Call up and ask to speak with him/her and let them know what has happened.
I can see the conversation now.. "Oh Doctor, you dont need to make money. Lets just get a new patient." ... what a joke. I can't really see a doctor letting a nurse decide the size of his pay check. Empty threats are such a let down. When you see her next give her a little ruffle and say, "Whats wrong? Doctor didnt let you choose which patients to treat? Here, come take my Blood Pressure. I wont even make you wait a month.."
I do hope you are able to get everything done. You are long over due for a break. It sounds like you have been working around the clock the last few weeks. I hope you can find a few moments to rest. You are in our hearts here.
