This afternoon I have my first appointment with a neuro surgeon. Kind of nervous, kind of unsure what to expect. What questions do I need to ask?
All I know is that my pain level has increased and I'm tired of never knowing what each day will bring as far as intensity of pain, the intensity of depression cause by pain, the amount of meds needed, the feeling that this will never end, and the feeling that my pain is not being managed as well as it could. Sometimes I feel like just a number to the pain clinic, that my suffering is something I have to deal with alone.
