Patient Comments (2)
in Bethany, CT06524 |
I was hoping to obtain medication to control severe pain. At age83 sleep seemed to help,but the pain kept me awake. I was treated like I was a back ally crack head,and told to see my primary doc for any needed medication. He did NOT perform this failed or possibly botched operation,and I wondered why I should see him.I AM STILL IN SEVERE PAIN BUT WILL TRY TO SUCK IT UP. I can appreciate the reluctance to indiscriminately give medicationes,especially;with current problems that are happening.

He was wonderful before my surgery, but a year later when my pain came back and I have two broken rods and was diagnosed with arachnoiditis, his only response was that I must be depressed! Keep searching.
