Manage Pain or Not?
So I had made the decision that I would NOT call the pain management doc and just deal with the discomfort. I think my weight is exacerbating the problem so as I lose it, I will lose the pain as well. This afternoon, the pain management office left a message for me saying they received my paperwork and referral from my pcp and to go ahead and give them a call for an appointment. OK...first off, what office does this? Seriously, who is this proactive? I NEVER have offices call me unless it's to confirm an appointment..never make an appointment. So is this a sign? I don't know what to do now...because I had my mind made up but now I'm thinking maybe I'm meant to go to this other office or something. I realize it's not a big decision but I've been taking so much time off work and still have a lot of appointments to go with my lapband stuff that I'm just not sure I want to pursue this issue right now. Thoughts?
ETA: I swear I'm not this wishy washy! I seem to have lost all ability to make a simple decision in my life. PATHETIC!
