My appt with the PM clinic is finally here. I go tomorrow morning and to tell you the truth, I am pretty nervous. I have been reading these forum for awhile now, and have read all the posts about PM doctors and the good and bad experiences people have had. The thing is, this PM doc is my only option. I can't get another one if I don't like this one. This pain clinic is the only one in the state that accepts my insurance. I sure can't afford to pay to go to another doctor after this. I'm hoping for the best! My PCP helped me with pain meds to last until tomorrow, but after that, unless this new doctor prescribes me something tomorrow, I will have no more pain meds. I have been taking 600 mg of Neurontin 3x daily and Vicodin 5/500 mg 3x daily as needed. I'm pretty sure that I have everything I need for tomorrow all packed up. My new patient paperwork all filled out, all of my meds in a big baggy, my pain journal, my test results and X-rays and MRI's, and a book to read in the waiting room in case they are slow about getting to me! LOL I tend to overthink things sometimes so having all day today to make sure I have everything, then checking it all again, and again, has been kinda funny. LOL I know it's just nerves making me do all this. I'm not normally this bad!
Well, like I said in the subject of this post, wish me luck! I'll make sure I post tomorrow after my appt to let you all know what happened! I really needed to get all that out before I go to bed. Now I think I can sleep, finally.
