It seems I have had issues with my SCS since day one. First, after 3 weeks the surgeon released me to go back to work with restrictions and he had not even seen me since the day of surgery. My feeling is - he had got his money and is not wanting to mess with me anymore. X( Last week, while talking with my psychologist I mentioned that 7 weeks after surgery I still had a small hole in my incision on my side. He asked if I had called the surgeon and I told him no because I felt it wouldnt to any good. I told him the surgeon would glance at it and say "Looks good" and dismiss it. The psychologist called the surgeon and explained the situation and they agreed to see me the same day. And, as I suspected, that is exactly what he did. When I again expressed concerns about the pain I was having with both scars he told me he had never had a patient who had pain this far out after surgery and simply said "either it will get better or it wont". WTF?
Today, I was at work hardening (OT) and was doing the last of my stretches and felt a sharp pain in my right side and nearly went to my knees. I felt the IPG and it felt different. Im not sure if I pulled something in there loose or what. I went and got my therapist and told him what had happened. It hurt so bad I was crying. Now there is diminished coverage - has anyone had this happen??? I am calling the surgeon in the morning about it. (I wanted to talk to my lawyer first) The pain in my side is unbelievable. I'm scared he is going to tell me that all is ok and at this point I no longer trust him. He has told me one thing at one time and another the next time I see him. He isnt trying to find out why I am having so much pain and now with this I am afraid he is going to just blow me off again.
So here I sit frustrated and worried once again. ~X( :SS
