workmans comp pain drs vs regular pain drs
maybe someone can enlighten me. it seems to your humble poster that the topic comes back to pain drs and people not getting a good one. i was wondering if people who have no problems with pain drs who are compasionate and understanding and non judgemental are on regular insurance,ppo. are most people who have judgemental and non compasionate pain drs get them through workman's comp. it seems to me that the majority of people on this site suffer through workman's comp and are not being treated through regular insurance, ppo or hmo. it is just an observation on my part and i could be wrong. so the BIG QUESTION IS: are you on workman's comp and have problems with pain drs? are some of you on regular insurance and also having problems with pain drs. it seems that wc really screws with people and harrasses them with nagging and stalking patients. i know wc people who have had pictures taken of them and are refused treatments like mris and meds. i am glad i have regular insurance,ppo, and don't have to deal with wc drs and case managers
please let me know. it seems to me that problems would disappear if some were on a ppo and not wc. too bad some of you can't change. i feel your pain
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
