I'm just a bit irritated at my doctor now.
I'm recovering from my third back surgery since July and am frustrated about the fact I'm not seeing the results I was hoping for from the surgery. doc says" tuff, your in pain, deal with it. get over the fact you might be in pain the rest of your life." What the heck is that? some of these doctors think they know everything. No crap, I have to deal with it! that's the friggin point. I don't have to be happy about it! and pointing out the fact I could be worse off, how in the heck is that supposed to help? so now, what should I feel guilty for being upset about the reality I can't even look forward to "someday" not being in pain? Give me a break! I'm thinking about finding a different doctor, one that is used to treating patients with chronic pain.
