I have been seeing My PCP FRO my w/c related injury for pain and meds and was discharged from his care after he was deposed at the w/c hearing. I have been unable to find another dr. Yet until my pain management appt. on May 7th. I am using left over meds and herbal supplements to get by. It was very disheartening to say the least for my family Dr. To discharge me from his care. I have been a very compliant patient. He didn't want to deal with all the paperwork and beau arctic stuff that goes along with it.
I have a very serious life changing injury and feel scared to go to pain management. I have read and researched for a long time on my issues. My fears grow huge when I think that there is no magic bullet to heal or cure chronic intractable pain. I have tried almost everything to no avail. The last stop for me is pain management.
The horror stories about cervical injections and the potential complications are very scary.
I guess at this point in my life I need to trust a new Dr. With my life. It is very scary. I need to vent. Thank you for listening to me. I would feel encouraged by anyone who can help me who knows what the system is like.
