I'm back to ask a question of my HW friends. I have an appointment on Tuesday for the first of a series of three facet injections in my neck. Normally I would be very happy about this, but right now my lower back (my normal pain site) is in insane pain. Meds are barely touching it and I've been going through some pretty major stressors for the last month (at home). I have to go in for the procedure to get my med refill (they didn't give me a refill date and told me to ask when I came in for the procedure and they would give me my prescriptions).
Anyway, I am in so much pain right now that I don't feel like moving at all. I've definitely overdone it!!! I called the office (which many of you know is a MISTAKE with my PM) because I received something from insurance saying the last procedure on my lower back (RFA - Nov) was denied. I was concerned about them doing another procedure with that outstanding since they normally won't. They said they had already gotten this one pre-approved (but the insurance said they had not). So, if I call back, they are going to be in that "she's hunting meds" attitude that is so prevalent in the office and if I don't then I guess I'm not keeping them up to date on my procedure needs.
Do I go ahead and get the neck injections and my scripts despite the horrible pain of these injections or call and cancel the procedure and ask for med refill dates? I am so afraid of either option!!!
