Had my mental evaluation

I had my mental evaluation for my SCS trial this morning. The doctor said I passed and he would have the report at the pain doctors office before the end of the day. I hope this means I am fixing to have my trial. It takes the hospital I go to almost two months to approve a trial. Its almost been that long. Is it that way at every hospital? I called the doctor's office to get a status update but as usual they haven't called me back. I am so tired of waiting on nurses to call me back. I am tempted to call the insurance company to see if I my stuff has been submitted for approval, but i am afraid they will tell me I have been denied.

  • Nurse called me today and told they ar submitting my case to insurance. It should take one to two weeks for approval or denial. Hopefully it will be approved, cause I really need some help with the pain.

    Good thing I already see a shrink, I knew what to expect. Plus my doctor doesn't read the results he thinks they are worthless.
