Well, the appointment with the pain specialist was a little disapointing. I'm hoping things improve.
We went over what had happened since surgery, he watched me walk, and pressed on points to determine pain. Then he started his recommendations. Physical therapy with an SI specialist (existing issue but not one that I have energy for right now), and then ordered a CT of my back. He's not sure he agrees with my back surgeon and he thinks it may be the knee causing the pain so he also ordered a TENS unit. So he wouldn't schedule my back injections ordered by my back doctor nor would he extend the presecription for my pain medicine until we get that resolved (I will have to go back to my GP for more).
I'm pretty disappointed with him-but hopefully he will change his mind when he sees the CT. IF not, I'm back to the GP asking for more help. This has been a 3 month nightmare!
TAke are everyone, Diana
