Another MRI

Today my GP called a referal for me to have another MRI but just for my lumbar spine . He had me in his office yesterday and ask a lot of questions about SM and my accident and disc problems . Well I had the MRI and then the Radiologist wanted to compare what she had found to my last MRI . So we took her the last one and she acted real concerned but didn`t say anything except that she just needed to compare them . I don`t know what to think ,but my doctor has also set me up to see a new pain specalist and another NS but has not called to let me know when those appointments are or where . He was talking about Lubbock,Tx . for the NS and localy for the pain specalist . At least some one is trying to get something done now and that is great . But why did it take another episode for someone to act instead of listening to me in the first place . Doctors ,some of the time they will listen to their patients and then other times they just seem to not hear what we are saying , as if we aren`t even there .I gues his exam made him stop and examine all the notes that are in my file and then he read my whole file from when I was first diagnosed . He was a little upset that nothing had been done in the past two years and the amount of pain that I was actually in . Oh well at least something is finally getting done .

Well Monte at least someone sees that you have been neglected by the medical profession and is finally taking you seriously... it took my husband 3 times of going paralyzed before we even got his family Dr to see that he was not faking and 3 separate Dr\'s wrote him telling him he needed to take my husband more serious it took a retired Dr who had seen him in the office while the family Dr was away to get this family Dr to smarten up which was short lived but we are not done with this family Dr he maynot be ours anymore but the case we have going against him will end his medical career Gald to see things are starting to improve at your end lets keep the ball rolling for only positive things. Blessed be Lori
