I will make this short, i am sitting in the parking lot and am afraid to drive. My hubby couldnt come with me today due to a job.
I really am very upset at this point. Had hardware removal and scar removal from fusion on the 13th of his month. Spent 5 days in hospital due to nausea vomiting, fever, blood pressure issues and dizziness. Now the dr say he wont do my SCS because pain response to this "simple" surgery was so out of wack. He says i am a nice person, and admires me for continueing to work but he is done with me. Sent me out the door with nothing but a handshake!
He said if I can get my PM dr to do a subcutaneous SCS and i have good results for 6 months he will consider a paddle placement which requires a laminectomy. In his words he doesnt think anything will resolve my back issues at this point, but he cant tell me why i should have so much pain atbthis point. Ad he says i should get in better shape, that was the purpose of the hardware removal and SCS so i could increase activitiy levels. Btw, this is also the dr that said he doesnt feel i need to lose weight 2 months ago.
Called my PM dr and he cant get me in till the 7th and they dont keep a cancellation list. But i can call every morning to see if there is an
opening. I just feel so
. This is so unfair to me at this point!
I am going to try and find someone to come and get me since there is no way i can makeit home safely, i think i would be arrested for aggressive driving and causing an accident.
