I will admit that I have always been skeptical about PM. In general I am very leary about everything so why should this be different? I'm a NYer .. it's in our blood not to trust.
I found a great PM doc with a very helpful office staff. I'm not to thrilled with my neurologist right now but that's another story. Based on this last MRI and CT it looks like surgery is off the table for now and probably for quite a while.
So here's my question. I have a MRI and a CT which shows some good possibilities of where my pain is coming from. Injections are probably not possible according to the PM doc. So who decides what to do now? Does the PM doc take over my care or is the neurologist still actively involved? Also the PM's office says they can't do the disability paperwork so the neurologists office has been doing this.
I'm a little tired of going to the neurologist and having him go through the same tests and then tell me nothing. And God forbid if he wants to order more tests! But if his office has to do paperwork for disability I guess I have to check in once a month no matter what.
I guess I'm curious to know what everyone else has done. I'm trying to accept this change in plans but it isn't easy. I'm also learning the hard way that there are rules to the game of disability.
