Saw neuro number 15 yesterday…a Polish lady who ran over her appointment times by 70 mins, so I put that down to her being new and thorough…I got the feeling she was very interested about my case…good!
We went through my list of current problems as follows;
- The pain in my tum since the spc op…she examined the area and asked lots of questions and decided it isnt nerve pain, but possibly 1 of 3 things…a hernia…or
soft tissue bruising from the op…or
So in her letter to my GP (and she said I`ll get a copy), she will be asking for a scan.
The heel pain…she will be asking GP to prescribe pregabalin.
The floppy feet and thigh ache…she`s referring me to physio for orthosis (splints)
I didnt really think at the time (as often happens when we see neuros, eh?) to ask why she couldn`t do that herself with a hospital pharmacy script.
So I felt the appointment had gone well. I am now awaiting all the right things to happen, which will help with my problems.
I had a good sleep last night…the first for a while!
Who else is on pregabalin and has it helped?
