Update Pain Mgmt Appt 1st time Drug tested



  • Glad to hear that things are "moving forward" for you.

    My PM does a urine test every month. There are some times I go when they don't do them; and when I asked about the inconsistency, they said they have to by law get one at least every 2 months and that I have to see the doctor (as opposed to the NP) at least 4 times a year. Now, I am not saying this is an actual law; it's just what the office told me. I am sure each facility has their own procedural rules in place just in the event the "feds" come knocking at the door. No respectable doctor wants to be shut down on a technicality...

    Are the screws in your back metal? I'm just wondering out loud if an MRI would be safe if you have metal in your body? Keep that in mind, ok? You wouldn't want that to come ripping out of you during the magnetic portion of the study...

    Good luck, hon. I hope you are able to get your pain levels to an acceptable level. THanks for keeping us posted!
