I saw the pain doctor or should I say his PA today. My pump is scheduled for the 13th. The surgeon had told me that my pump will be filled with saline only and no post-op meds would be given by him. The only thing he would send me home with is antibiotics and all post-op meds must come from the pain clinic. Which to me is understandable since I get all my meds from the pain doctor. I was told today that they will not fill it until around the one month mark ( giving time to heal) but when I told her that the surgeon said that all my post op meds has to come from her office she states " Ive never heard such a thing and I want the doctor to call me. Call him and tell him to call me." I felt basically like she was calling me a liar. She also told me that they do not fill the pump with saline it will be with medication which is not true, that is not what the surgeon told me. Long story short I call the surgeons office and tell them my issue and they say " They would have to discuss this with the office manager and she would take it to the surgeon " At this point I lost it. I stated "look I understand that this is the surgeons procedure but neither doctors are working together and Ill be da##ed if you operate on me with no post op meds." I told her if they couldnt get their act together to cancel the surgery. She told me she would talk to the Dr. Imagine that .... I havent heard a word. Im really concerned about the aftercare. If it is this bad before the surgery what kind of nightmare will it be after the pump is placed? I placed a call to the office manager and of course no return call from her. I could understand all this if I flunked my urine test or took my drugs other then prescribed but I have been the perfect patient. I have Never complained or asked for more meds, complied with all the rules even the ones I disagree with. I tried to call the pain Drs office and schedule a appointment with the main doc but of course there are no appts available before my surgery date. I explained what my issue was to the receptionist and she sent me to voice mail to the office manager. Im at loss at what to do.
