  • I hope you're doing well with rash and proper meds for your pain. I'm sorry even though I'm an RN I didn't recognize PA. They're talking about bringing them here to Canada but really the NP can do more than a PA. So they're looking to train more NPs and especially experienced Nurses have 60% knowledge of what a regular Dr. has not a Surgeon or Specialist. I'm glad you're seeing the Surgeon today and hope all went well with your appointment. Take care. Charry

  • My nurse in the hosp told me that the PA are becoming more and more popular. They have heavy work duty but their pay is close to Docs. How about that...you should move forward with that if you can.

    Appt. went well...I had an alergic reaction to something they used during surgey, the glue or the collar. hummm...

    They gave me darvocets instead of vicodin...hummm....we'll see how that works.

    So where in Canada? My husband is trying to put a fishing trip together with my brothers and brother in laws and he wants the wives to go. I will get the info later and let you know.

    Hey, Happy New Year!

  • I hope the Darvocets help you better. I live in Toronto. Try to visit the CN Tower if you come. There's no real fishing where I am but some up north in cottage country. Happy New Year's to You! Charry

  • The PA treated me the same way and sent me to a pain management doctor. What a jerk she is and now I'm wait for another aurtorization which she hasn't sent the number. If I had to do it over I would have never went to this doctor because of her. The doctor had the nerve to say to me if you are nice to her she's nice to you. Why should I be nice to her???? She's rude and doesn't fo her job!

    The doctor is telling me after surgery he'll give me pain meds and she's having a fit! I was in pain and I still have a bottle full of Perocet that I only used when needed after surgery and the woman acted like I needed to be in rehab only two weeks after surgery and sent me to a pain management doctor. They do the doctor's job and then get cranky! You do live and learn that's for sure.

    Good Luck!

  • Wow Cin! I felt like I was reading my own e-mail....hee hee....I hope you do not live in pittsburgh, pa.....it would be tooo funny.

    I am so sorry to hear about your accident with your daughter. I pray you recieve relief and heal soon.

    I feel pain takes over your life. It just dictates everything and to make matters worse and there is nothing we can do. The docs aren't as smart as they think they are...the pain meds do not work that great...they should mix pain pills and alternate pain pills. One to keep addiction from starting, two to gain control and show respect to the patient and three the body tolerence level changes. Ultimately what really happens is people take more and more of the same pain pills and they become intolerant to those pain meds which in turn starts a dominoe effect to drug misuse.

    The reality of it all is certain pain like mine and yours should not be pain free...if we were to be pain free we would make the injury worse.

    What I have learned after suffering ten years is recurrant back and neck pain means your life stlye needs to change. I refused to change. I am a very competive girl and I loved it too. I just refused to change. Like right now, I want to go skiing and I want to know when I can. But i am affraid of another surgery.

    As my girlfriends mother used to say "your health is your wealth!"

    Happy New Year to you and your family!
