I dont know if I have asked this before or not but here goes.
Okay, back in June , or maybe it was the end of May, my pain clinic doctor made this appt for me to have a procedure done on my back which essentially is some form of epidural pain block. He did it without asking me if I was okay with him setting it up for the next appointment which would have been Mid-July. He didnt explain the procedure at all, he just said there was a procedure and asked if I might be interested. I said I would look into it. At that point, he left the room and my appointment was over. He never came back and I was told to go to the waiting room to wait for check out. When they handed me my prescriptions and went to make my next appointment they told me they said I had to have this procedure done. Well I managed to talk my way out of it in July because of all the junk going on with my stomach and then I got in today because I was a last minute call in because I forgot to make my appointment last month. Well now they say I have to have this procedure.
However, this doctor didnt say a darned word to me about it while I was in the exam room where I could tell him that I dont want it. I dont want these people to do anything invasive to me. I have talked to many people in the waiting room there and most of the time nothing helps. They keep doing this stuff in the office in this strip mall because it makes more money for them. I let them do a trial one early on and it made things worse for me. After I got my recent MRI, my gp and I decided I would go see a neurosurgeon to make any decisions about what would happen regarding anything invasive to my back and that is where I am standing. My pain doc isnt happy with this. Well Im not thrilled that the pain doc wont even look at the newest MRI. I have even taken a copy of the disc in to them and their "system" doesnt have a dvd/cd drive nor do they have an email address I could email it to. WTH? Fine, you arent sticking any needles into my back then! You have no clue where you are sticking those needles. You can easily mess up a back and I dont trust these people that much. Pills are one thing. Invasive is another.
They cant force me can they?
