Wish me luck!!! I have all of my stuff together, I think
Hopefully I didn't forget anything. Seems as though lately I forget a lot more than I used to, not sure if it is the pain, meds, or both... Anyway, I printed off all of my appointments I have had for the last year and a half from my Outlook calendar, typed up all meds, procedures, and doctors names, addresses, and who they are with, put who wrote me what scripts next to each med, printed FMLA paperwork, MRI and CT scan reports, and I think that is everything. Lord I hope this goes good, I think I may breakdown if not, my pain is sky high recently and I did not get any sleep last night so I am not too peachy today. I so do not want this whole "doctor shopping" thing in my file. I really feel like it will be fine once I sit down and talk to him and get it all straightened out. I know the lady that called me from his office shouldn't have been rude, but I do see the doctor's point. When you pull my scripts from the pharmacy it does look bad if you do not know what I have been through. The only thing that sucks is my neuro and PM were supposed to have been sending all this info to my gp so I did not get into a mess like this. Oh well, too late now I guess.
And I have an appointment rescheduled for the new pain doc for 3/15/10. I so hope they get me on something that helps my pain. I do not want more injections though and I have heard they like doing those. I have already had more than I can count and they did not help. I think I am coming to the realization that I am going to be in pain and need to figure out how to manage it not find a cure. Wow, that was hard to say.
