Hey BTL...If it's possible to see your PM sooner, DO IT. I don't see you as a "problem patient" as you are a newbie with PM. I am, too. I think you should talk honestly with him and explain how you are feeling. Am I wrong in that you just had surgery in August? If so, my mercy, your body has not healed! Discuss your/his expectations of pain relief through medication and other modalities. I feel like his goal should be getting you up and going with some degree of pain relief, rather than bedridden with pain. I know from experience that my bed can be seductive..."Come back to me. Snuggle into the covers with your laptop or IPad. It's safe here in the darkness and isolation. I'll make it all go away!"
The truth is, retreating to bed whether working from home or not, is not good for you, sweetie. EVERY morning I make my bed as soon as I get up. I fully dress it with it's loads of decorative pillows, so that it's too pretty to "mess up". I make it a "deterrent" to crawling back into it before bedtime. I know it sounds silly, but I realized YEARS ago that my pain (much like yours) would put me back into bed EVERY morning if I didn't. I hurt SO BADLY, in pain upon awakening, that I have to self-motivate to even face another day of suffering.
Please talk with your doctor sooner than 2 weeks, if he has an opening. Try to remain calm and un-emotional when speaking with office personnel. Otherwise, they'll quickly label you as "psychotic". It's a crying (pun intended) shame but true.
