Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
I had my intrathecal pain pump for three months implanted. I am on fentanyl medication And they had been increasing my medication every other week for the past two and half months. I have had no pain relief whatsoever so when I went into the Clinic yesterday they had me Meet with the doctor because I was getting no relief. The doctor had them do what's called a bowl on me which is a burst of medication which I felt no relief. They then sent me and put the needle in me with the camera to check out the placement of the catheter. The catheter was pulled out of position about an inch and a half to 2 inches. So now I have to go in and have them reset the catheter so that I can hopefully get some pain relief has anybody ever had this problem? I just turned 40 years old and this is my fifth surgery in year and a half and I have Lots of scar tissue entrapment around my L5-S1 Nerve roots in which I am scared of getting more scar tissue as it is Hey horrible pain to experience when the nerve gets pulled on. I apologize for my spelling and runarounds I'm not very good with punctuation and grammar.
