And not a good one.
I had my first pm appt today - full of hopes of advice and a kindly ear and some input on proactive ways forward.
Instead I have come back and cried for about half an hour. He didn't really want to hear what my pain situation was and interrupted every time I was answering his questions on my history and current symptoms. Then he just said I have nerve pain from scar tissue and either have to accept it and find ways to live a life less - well I don't like using the word he used so I won't - or have injections and maybe an SCS in 3 years time.
I know this may be the reality and I don't want someone to lie to me but my consultant hadn't seemed to concerned by the scan results on friday and felt I was in the right hands with my physio and working on a proactive regime so to hear such "hopeless" news in such a blunt unpleasant way has really upset me.:-(
Sorry for the rant - I am just so disappointed and sad that I put my hope it getting help from this guy and having another person on "team get better" when it really just felt like a waste of time. Are all pms the same?!
