to my pelvis. I was in ICU for 8 days had to have 13 blood transfusions and got home last Sat. The doctors wrote my pain scrips for 3 days not 30, so I've been writhing in pain for the last week. I finally got a hold of the pain clinic doctor and was told a new scrip would be mailed, that will take 7 days!!! I asked if someone could drive the 40 miles in Los Angeles traffic and pick it up, told no first then after raising hell was told that would be fine. Why do these doctors not think someone's excruciating pain is a serious matter? Why do I have to go through what is tantamount to torture. Been up for 5 days in pain! I'm so angry, what happened to first do no harm. The whole issue with my surgery was pain control since this was my 14th spinal surgery and I've been in Chronic Pain for over 30 years. I am so frustrated and in pain it's hard to think anymore.
