Stupid orthopedic surgeon doesn't get it.. his revision of a surgery he screwed up was not a total fix.. He DID admit to possibly damaging my sciatic nerve in the first surgery that failed.  I am being referred to a doctor to implant a spinal nerve stimulator, and in the meantime, one of the staff at the ortho office, that I don't know the medical background of, siad they couldn't do anything for my pain... ********. I am waiting for the doctor to call me TODAY, as I spoke to one of his colleagues through the after hours exchange that I WILL ONLY speak to the doctor, and that the doctor WILL call me. I do not want to go into the office and force some face time. Being in excruciating pain day in and day out causes flashbacks for me with my PTSD.

It ***** because I was a military medical provider. I was a combat medic, and medical specialist, in many different areas.
