If you had a pain management physician prior to your fusion surgery, who perscribed pain meds for you after surgery? Your surgeon or pain management Dr? I signed a contract with my pm physician that I wouldn't get pain meds from other physciains. Was this a problem for anyone?
I do have a call in to my pm Dr. to double check everything. He referred me to my NS, and he said he would do the PM for me at the hospital. Well, my NS has chosen to perform my surgery at a hospital where my pm physician doesn't have privaleges (he prefers it, says it is a better hospital, and it has all private rooms). My PM dr isn't the best one I have ever had, so it doesn't bother me that he won't be doing my pm at the hospital.
Thanks for your input. It is now one month until my surgery so I am starting to fret over the details. :S
