When I got up yesterday morning, I was in so much pain. I knew the results should have been available. I always ask them to mail me a copy and I hadn't received it. Still haven't heard back from the Physiatrist for a random drug screen. I was just getting mad, so I went over there to pick it up.
I apparently re-injured myself when I fell down the stairs. The L3& L4 discs are herniated again and rubbing against the nerve roots there are also antero and retrolisthesis changes. I was just horrified when I read it. I am right back to where I was 8 weeks ago with the laminectomy. Now I can look forward to another surgery and most likely a several level fusion. I am going to run out of pain medication in a few days.
I posted this post a few days ago. Just fyi.
I went for the new MRI this morning. Still having more pain than I think I should. I went back Monday for the drug test I wasn't able to produce on Friday. The office staff had a nasty attitude. I knew I should have forced myself to go back on Friday. I was so exhausted, I just couldn't handle it. So, I've already gotten off on a bad foot with the Physiatrist. I don't play with my meds and once again feel like a criminal. I can account for every pill I take. The system sucks so bad. Now I have wait until they decide they can surprise me so I can get it done. So tired of the head games.
I am really at the end of my rope now. I will be seeing my Therapist Tuesday and will ask her to contact them. I understand people mean well when they tell me that I have to put my health first. That's all well and good,what is it going to take for these PROFESSIONALS to take me seriously and treat me humanely? I must function. My next step is calling a lawyer and I will sue for lack of adequate pain management. The proof is in back and white.
My husbands foot is slowly healing. His blood pressure is still all over the place. He also has gastroparesis and his stomach is all whacked out again. He's complaining of pain in both legs and needs to get it checked out. All of his issues are life threatening.
God help me, none of this is exaggerated.
