Found myself a new neurosurgeon and I have appointment. The pain in my neck and shoulder has really gotten bad over the past several days. I can't stand this anymore and I gotta do something. Saw the pain management jerk yesterday, we had words, and I am no longer going to him. I pleaded with him for something for my pain and he said I am giving you pain meds. I told him, yes but they are not helping. I then asked him why in God's name he wouldn't give me something stronger to help with the pain. Oh he says, now you are accusing me of withholding pain meds from you and it was all pretty much downhill from there. He is really a SOB. I started making calls this morning explaining my situation and making sure they would accept my military insurance and I found a doc that would see me. I have appt June 3. I called John at work and told him so he could schedule a vacation day to take me, it is downtown Louisville KY. I went to CHAMPUS' web site and pulled up all my charges with this pain management clown and I saw him a total of 4 times and the charges he submitted to the insurance came to total of $4810. He charged $2100.00 for last Monday's visit when I had the facet blocks done. I am all but dancing, I found a doctor who is willing to see me. They are aware that I have had a disc removed, hardware and all that and having major problems. They are willing to take me on as a new patient. Maybe I will finally find someone who will help me and I can get out of at least some of this pain.
