Hi everyone! :H
For anyone who has been in Pain Management, can you tell me what happened at your first visit?
Then after that, what treatments have you had?
I am being sent to Pain Management, and in my ignorance assumed that it meant being prescribed pain meds.
I have now been told by my physiotherapist that it is for Epidural Steroid injections. I don't like the sound of that!
Before I have any treatment like that, I want to have things explained to me.
What they do;
How many treatments;
Are there any possible dangers or side effects;
What benefit will they give;
What happens if I don't have them;
Is it ok to expect them to give me time to explain things, or will they want to give me an injection and then expect me to leave?
I wish I could re-run my appointment with the consultant now I have had time to think of questions; and this time without the 2 medical students so I got his full attention!
