I do so much to try to help with the pain and it is not easing it and I am supposed to be starting the taper of percocet now. Dont get me started on pain management. I got myself kicked out due to not having a copy of a contract and being told to just sign there because it is their normal contract. I was in intense pain my first appointment and had no idea and wasn't told. I should have been given a copy especially being hard of hearing and dyslexic. Now I know better. Nothing like being accused of being an addict flat out by the dr who only met me for 2 minutes the first appointment (I had no idea who he was and why he shook my hand). Also had a nurse practitioner lie to me and press hard along my spine sending the first area into spasm now. The first nurse who took my vitals told me there was no reason to have my mom come into the room with me from the waiting room. I called her in mid appointment. No way I am having my nerves burned or an epidural with tarlov cyst disease (permanent cyst) and intense inflammation from adhesive arachnoiditis. I trust my research and knowledge much more than their off the wall and their conflicting info so they saym also the black box warning from the fda on steroid epidurals and includes possible nerve injury. Not happening. I take responsibility for making the mistake of not reading the contract that I signed. I know better from now on. I will have someone with me at an appointment unless it is with my surgeon who respects me. Crazy people and I think the dr was scared that I know so much about my diseases and my body and that I lidten to it.
