  • In California they are often listed as "rehabilitation/physical medicine doctors."
  • Well I spoke with my GP and she says her radiologist doesnt see anything operable but they didn't do a complete write-up so I'm not sure what they did find.

    I took a shot in the dark and called the "independent" diagnostic office that did the CT scan that showed the problems. THis is the same scan that the surgeon used to show my husband and myself on his computer screen where the problems were. I talked to a really nice woman who said they will do a reading of the MRI that was done in my doctors office as well as a comparison to the CT that they did and issue a written report. Yeah!!!!

    When I spoke with my GP about the blood work results I got some strange answers. She completely ignored my questions about the effects of the neurontin. She also ignored the gallbladder issue that she said the blood tests would address. Then she prescribed a cholesterol drug which when I looked up the contra-indications is not for someone with gallbladder issue - what the heck? I asked her about it and she said that the triglicerides were so high it was worth the risk of permanent gallbladder and liver damage. So basically I got very little in results from her.

    Hopefully the radiologist will be able to give me some useful info. Before this all started I never realized how easy life was....
