…..Jennie,….. Vickie has given you some wise information, so look through it well and take it for the wisdom and experience that it is. Many of us have been through this process more than once, and we are sharing with all here (Members and Visitors), out of compassion for those of us who hurt on a 24/7 bases.
I have thought a little more about
your fist appointment, and I now realize that what you went to was a possible consultation of patient meets the Dr, and the Dr meets the patient? If that be the case, then I can see why no vitals were taken. I have been through the same process.
Now once accepted as a patient, then all appointments should be proceeded with vitals being taken. Most of these PM's regardless of what meds you are on, will want to establish a new baseline. Some will and some wont.
Again, keep it honest and simple, and be prepared for things to go either way. It happens, and not much you can do about
it. If things don't go well, then accept it, review it mentally, and drive on.
Again, we wish you success!….Good Luck!
