I just got back from my monthly appt. with PM Dr. I had an ALIF fusion surgery five months ago, and I have lots of pain, still. Three ESI's were done, the last one on Jan. 5, 2007. Well, first of all, my PM dr. is upset that I didn't have them done in her office, and she asked me if I could change to my neurosurgeon's PM dr. Well, come to find out, my NS pain management drs. only do ESIs, etc. Now, my PM wants to do SI injections in the next six weeks. Is this too soon? She was telling me that I didn't have too much cortisone the last three times...how does she know? She told me that she is concerned about the DEA, etc. Please help. Is anyone else having these problems. By the way, she did give me my scrip for pain meds, thank you, LORD.
God bless all of you.
