Thanks for the poster of reminding me of patient advocate at the VA because they immediately intervened. Had them check with pain management to see what the hold up was with the appointment for the injections and records release who both called one after another. Patient records
opened up with they heard I complained about
my records not being sent and I told her that was correct. She could see when I last came over personally to check on the records which were sent 12 October, 10 miles from me. Never made it so they are resending today. Pain management gave me an early December appointment, not for the injections but for a consult. Geez, its been over 2 months since I saw the neurosurgeon.
I actually love the VA for medical care but some of the veterans at any VA seem to be very lazy. Pain management is probably backed up but the records are what I need like right now! As far as my pain in the neck, it has been very manageable with not so much radiating tinging and very little medication. I do stay in the gym quite a bit and swim as well. I don't over do it and try not to put undo stress on the neck.
