Pain Management worthless
I have herniated discs in L4 & L5 with severe radiculopathy for approx 1 yr, I have been seeing Pain management for 4 months. I have had 3 EPS with relief not lasting more than a week. When I called his office after 10 days they said "Well what do you want us to do?" I have advised him of leaking of urine, he suggests urologist. He said 3 weeks ago that he would refer to neurosurgeon and that still has not been done. He states that he does not prescribe narcotics that if I need them to call PD. So what is Pain management for??? Next suggestion from him is stimulator but I don't get to see him for another week! I don't think I can take it!! Any ideas? PS. I don't do well with pain medications due to depression.
