I am so glad to hear from you. I really really appreciate your keep us updated. Our family thinks about you often and we all want to know how you are doing.
...now that being said so called doctor needs a swift ...... WHAT is she thinking! The hypersensativity argument would have some basis...except that you havnt been on ANY medication for OVER 6 MONTHS. And even when you were on medication it was least possible amount so you could function and still work!
~~> levels! OK, I'm 57 y/o and weigh 270lbs and I know lots of y'all here take a whole lot more pain meds than I ever did and I'm guessing that not many of you weight as much as I do??
Pete, bud, I am only 5ft 5in now and weight 120lbs. I am on a whole heck of alot more meds than you, be it begrudgingly..still a whole heck of alot more than you. It barley touches my pain. I live on the level 8-9 express daily. On good days...
~~> I think you have bigger problems than just youir pain!
Yea and the BIGGER problem is some joke of a doctor who thinks that she leave you in the dark and barley able to function for 6 months because she has a superiority complex.
And honestly the shirnk part is right. But not for the reasons she thinks. The bigger problem is now you are going to have a VERY hard time trusting doctors in the future. It will be very hard to trust any kind of medical personel after this. Were talking about MONTHS of being treated badly, ignored, violated and pourposfully left in severe pain. Its gonna take alot of work for you to be able to trust again after this. I am so terribly sorry she has done this to you.
I know you want to work. We all know you and know how much you have hated not working. But stop, take a deep breath and remember. If you work at this point you will do irreversable damamge. You physically cannot do it.
Also, just a random thought but, I think she may be one of the reasons why your claim was denied. I know, I know, many factors go into the decisions..but at this point I am wondering just what kind of role she played in the overall decision to deny your claim?
Methadone effecting your heart??? She confusing that with the street druggs?? Wow, this gal is rich. I think for your safety it is time to go. He alterior motives are becomming more and more apparent as time goes by, and they have nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with her personal dogma. This lady is dangerous in the worst kind of way.
I hate to say it, and I KNOW this is the last thing you have time for. But, you need to leave, and yesterday. She is dangerous. Let her play roulette with someone elses life. You don't have the time or the money for her to play with your life.
Get the MRI done, and keep records for yourself. Then get to a new pain management or orthapedic doctor as fast as you can. (Come to think of it, maybe ask your primary for a referral or make appointments while waiting for your MRI appointments)You have got to be upfront about this gal and how long you have been denied proper treatment. Over half her arguments are based on a cenario and a life style which you do not fit and never will. Any good doctor worth his training and education will be able to see what she has tried to do.
This is the LAST thing you need right now. Geeze, I wish she had made her motives more apparent sooner. Would have saved you ALOT of time and money. I am so sorry she did this too you. I am so sorry you have to start the process of finding a doctor all over again. Please, know you are in our prayers. Hang in there and stay strong!

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
