Hello Scarred! I sent you a PM (Private Message) with a suggestion for a PM here in this area.
There are several in this area, and the one you are going to, was supposed to be the best, but there have been many complaints about
them as of late.
I don't know what your dosage is or if you have tried other meds, but surely there is someone here that can help you.
I'm beginning to think that if your current PM is unwilling to work with you and at least look for another solution, it might be time to go elsewhere.
As I had said before, when I went, they treated me like I was a criminal, and I was madder than a hornet when I left. The PA there was an absolute SNOT!
I was only taking X4 Percocet's a day when I was sent to them, and was in terrible pain. My PCD called their office, and the fight was on! Our Dr is considered the Dr Oz in this area, and has a wonderful reputation.
My sister also went to the same PM as you are going to, and all they wanted to do was give an epidural, and no other meds as well. She has since then had a fusion of the lower lumbar such as mine,
and currently receiving her meds from her surgeon. She also has some nerve damage, and is worried that she will have a hard time getting meds when her Surgeon stops providing them.
It is a mess all across this country for many that need Pain med care.
I also have a friend at work that is going to the KU med center for his pain management, but that would be quite a drive for you.
I hope this all works out for you, and feel for you.
