Today I recieved some good news in the mail!!
My appointment with the Doctor who may be doing my pain pump implant arrived today!! It is set for the 14th!! Next week!! I have been waiting 3 months to hear from this Doctor!!
I have been needing some good news right now. And this IS good news. Perhaps, before long, I will get help with this savage foot and leg pain.
Keep your fingers crossed for me my friends

    APROUD CANADIANveteranButNOTa doctor, my thoughts are my own
  • This is my very last resort.
    I have not even met this Doctor yet. This is my first appointment so I know nothing yet.
    Oh...but I have such high hopes this will work for me.

    Perhaps I am counting my eggs before they hatch. Perhaps this is not the Doctor for me. I do not know yet. But I do have my first appointment and that is one step closer to hopefully getting the help I need to get this savage pain under control.
    Kathy...Thank you my friend. We both have been having a bad time of it havn't we? Keep your fingers crossed.
    Hi Brothers....Thank you. I am hoping for the relief too.
    Pete my friend...We are gonna make it aren't we buddy?
    Kelly...I know you are hoping the best for me.
    Thank you everyone for your well wishes.
    Sending everyone a left arm hug >:D<

  • I hope your appt next week is productive and that the doctor will explain things in more detail. I know you waited for such a long time and can imagine how excited you are. Write down whatever questions you may have in case. I get nervous too and forget what I want to say. I'm going in to my appt too so I can be scheduled for my surgery and I'm so excited. It's been like..forever. Anyway, please let us know how it goes, and if you have any questions about the trial itself, feel free to PM me. Take care sweetie >:D<
  • Thinking Happy thoughts for you!

  • Great news about the appointment. I wanted to suggest that you search the different manufacturers of pain pumps for information on each one. My doctor gave me a DVD to watch about the one she would recommend if I were to be able to get one. It was good to watch the DVD as it answered many questions. If you can come up with this type of information prior to your doctor visit, this will help you to focus your appointment time on things you don't understand. I do hope this helps you Patsy. Good luck to you.
    Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
