This past 3 weeks I have really learned why, especially my Pain management doctor has a booming business. I have had him for 2 years now, he takes his time with me in his office to answer all my questions, he looks for ways to help me manage the pain, and lastly he is a doctor who has no problem telling you when the surhgeons are passing the buck. The Orthapaedic Surgon at my last appointment said well I have fixed your bones, i cant do anything for you unless its bone related, have your Pain management doc refer you to a Neurologist! I left feeling so confused. I have no confidence in that Doctor anymore. When I told my pain doc what had been said he shook his head. I asked him what he thinking, he said this is why there is such a need for what I do, surgeons wont tell you when the back/neck surgery wasnt successful! I will remember this in the future and secure second opinions and manage my own health.
Always find a Doctor that will be un afraid to tell you the truth, even if it means outing another Doctor.
