Skrape, I know from some of your previous threads that you felt you were at the end of your ropes before and then a new doctor on the scene. Is that right? I would ask for a copy of your files with the lastest procedure to make sure he documented the error in the procedure. Otherwise he could argue that he did it right you just thought he did it wrong. You are a chronic pain patient who uses drugs and he is a doctor who are they going to believe? We seem to have multiple doctors that specialize in the field of quackology.
I am not sure how easy it would be to find a new doctor at this point but it does not sound like it is not a bad idea to be looking. I am not sure what your insurance situation is but they would probably flip if they were billed for the epidurals that were improperly given. You have to become your greatest advocate to get either this doctor to look at the patch vs other meds in reality instead of uncertainty. Hang in there. Even though it seems at times that nothing seems to go right, we still are able to find times of victory amidst the failures. But the only way we find them is to keep trying and not giving up. Keep us posted as to where things are at.
