I am very frustrated with my PM drs office right now. I was supposed to have a Rhizotomy 2 weeks ago but the office was waiting for the equipment to be delivered. I told the dr I would try one more round of injections while we waited for the equipment because (it seemed like I would have to throw myself in front of a car to get any pain relievers, I was only asking for a weeks worth until my procedure was done, and I have not had any in 3 yrs because drs did not believe me).
The dr agreed to another round of injections and we went to the little or area and he started, I could immediately tell these ones felt different the pressure/pain I felt in my si joints was immeasurably different. I rode it out hoping it would calm down and after 3 days it was better and I felt good for maybe a day and then the pain roared its ugly head and I have a horrible stabbing pain in my left si joint and my right is the deep ache from my groin into my femur bone
I called the drs office on friday explained what was going on and also asked if the equipment was there yet, I was told the dr was not in and they would have to call me back. Well now it is Wednesday and I still have not heard anything............I just called and received vm and I left a message and asked if it is normal procedure for a patient in pain to have to wait until wed of the following week and still not hear something,
Currently waiting for a call back if I do not hear anything in 1 hr I am calling again.
Am I being unreasonable? I have anxiety and I am afraid if I go to the er they will label me as a pain seeker and put it on my charts and never help me again if I go in.
Has anyone experienced a lot of pain after injections
