I had my mri in feb and it took till last week to get the results which I think was way too long. when my doctor rang to tell me the results which is a herniated disc in the thoratic spine I said where to from here. He said he would refer mr back to the pain clinic. No mention of a spine specialist or anything.
My pain clinic doc dosent get back for another month and a half and is booked up for another month after that.
After reading some of your post here and researcing what I actually had I realised that I needed to see some sort of specialist.
So I went to my doctor on monday and said I wasn't happy with his treatment of my condition and thought he shouldve reffered me onto a specialist. So he said that he would write a letter of refferal.
I rang yesterday and asked for my doctor to ring me back but he didn't
I rang my doctors today and he hasn't even started the letter which makes me mad
I also asked if there was any other form of pain relief I could try and for my doc to ring me back, but of course no phone call.
I haven't even been told what I should and shouldn't be doing in the way of work or daily house chores. I am totally in the dark like they don't care.
It was like you have a prolapsed disc in your thoratic see you latter.
Sorry this is so long I am angry,sore,scared and depressed.
Thanks for listening
