I am so frustrated don't know what to do!!! I have been having issues and was in and out of ER the last time I was admitted had several tests run and was diagnosed with my chronic pain not being controlled (which I have been telling pain management for months). Went to pain management where they refused to adjust meds telling me they will only change my Fentynal patch which causes extreme itching to Methadone which made me extremely ill. I saw the PA and she told the doctor and he agreed to see me in a week then 5 minutes after leaving the office they called and said doctor refuses to see me and will not change medication despite the hospital saying my pain isn't being controlled. I filed a formal complaint against doctor, but am stuck until they change pain management groups.
I am currently stuck in bed, well my recliner due to 6 back surgeries. Plus they changed my neurtostimulator to a Nevro system which isn't working and the rep has had me turn off to see if that is causing new pain.
I had gastric bypass less than 2 years ago and lost over 200 pounds and for the first time in my life I am underweight and malnourished because I am in so much pain I simply can't eat. My neurosurgeon is saying that since losing weight my body is now dealing with pain differently and pain management doesn't seem to understand or care. I just feel stuck, alone and in excruciating pain in tears.
