Well I seen my PM today, He said that as long as the pain in my right neck and shoulder and upper arm is gettign better that he would not be overly concerned, and that it is probably just part of the healing, but he did say that it might be a good idea to at least call the surgeon and let him know about
it if it continues to bother me!
With that said I also asked him if he remembered when I had the argument with Doctor ------ the Neurologist? and I told him that I thought he was blowing me off, and that he did not see any use in me having the epiidural that you gave me or going to the Neurosurgeon that you sent me to? He said he remembered it well as we had talked about
it afterward. Well I said I am really mad about
that in light of what the Neurosurgeon was able to do for me. and I was right he was blowing me off. He told he thought that I should file a formal complaint against him, if I felt that strongly about
it. He also told me that he felt my reasons were valid! So before leaving the clinic I went and got s complaint form! I honestly feel that something should be said or done, as if I had taken that neurologist advice, I would still be having all tha left arm pain, and having it for a long time to come! Maybe by filing this, that if nothing else he will be made aware of his screw up and possibly it will not be repeated with some else. I can at least hope that anyway!
