Mercy&Grace: Here's some southern love BLESS YOUR HEART!!!!!! that is such unprofessional awful; treatment that you suffered and i am so sorry you had to endure such treatment and in such a vulnerable time in your life.
TO UPDATE PEOPLE:I received a call from THE PRESIDENT OF GEORGIA PAIN MGT FOR KAISER and she stated that the doctor i saw was the "best for restorative pain mgt" and getting people back to a healthier place. Their reluctance to put me on a extended release medication was as she said "your 29 yr old where do we go from here, what are we to do when u are 39, even 33 years old. we are afraid of upping your dose and you taking more and more medication, looking at your chart you are on far more meds than last year" The med thing is true KINDA i am on robaxin, that was added last fall and i had my narcotic changed to ms contin which is actually in the same level as the oxycodone i think.
She told me that she believes the same about the medication as the doctor i saw, i told her what kinda year i have had-which i have been quite vocal on here about. I said i will come off the meds when "your treatment plan" works, when i am truly feeling less pain, when i am truly stronger. until then me and my primary will handle the medication and you and i will handle "life skills for pain and mindfulness classes"
I am still livid but i felt like she was trying to convince me NOT TO GET A 2ND OPINION with my primary but i have rights and i used them. I start physical therapy Monday today was my consult and it will be good i hope.
But i am left feeling ICKY like they are trying REALLY REALLY hard to convince me that i dont need medication and that its their way or the highway.
WHAT DO Y'ALL THINK::>???? they want me to keep my next appt with pain mgt in November b\ut i feel weird about it.
