sad  To ALL my forum friends, I am awaiting my cardio's OK for me to have an Epidural pain block done.
I have had 2 Celiac blcks done, though they didnt help. I should have had the 3rd one done though, usually w/pain docs,you should at least try 3 before trying something else.
I live about 15min away from Chicago my cardio doc is here in the subs. He wants me to go to a Heart Hosp in Chicago, I really need him to sign off on this procedure first though.
Going to Chicago which is the 2nd largest city in North America, is not always an easy thing to do.
I do like my cardio doc, he has always treated me well, though I have noticed that when a doc, wants you to move on, they dont want too do anything else.
I have called him everyday last wk from Mon skipped Tues, then WED-Fri. No return call. I even spoke w/the nurse I first spoke w/on MON.
What the heck.
Am I doing something wrong, I am so scared to have this procedure done as it is. His not re turning my calls isnt helping.
