45 yr old female with brachial plexes nerve damage from getting ran over by chevy pickup leaving me with no feeling in left arm. My back was broke in 4 places so during my months stay at a hospital in Lakewood Co which I was flight for life to from my small town Cortez Co where the accident happened I had to learn to eat talk and walkl again when at first they did not think I would walk or talk again if I even lived. when released I was suppose to fimd me my own family care physision since I did not have one to care for me and to get the right care for my back my arm and my coratted artories. Ferom my first choice sant me to pain specialist then he sant me to neuoloigist then my doc left and gave me to another doc new in town, and the only thing I have gotten from all of them is I need to quit drugs for pain and live with it and poeple live without an arm every day. This new doc did tell me to get xrays on my back, the first since I was released from hospital Nov.25th and when I seen her the second time trying hard and not succeeding holding tears back as she talked to me like I was some big druggie and told me I needed to deal with my problem, and when I asked if she got my xrays on my back so I would know if my 4 breaks healed or what and her reply was "have not got them yet, but it does not matter cause some peoples back look good, bad but everyone has to learn to live with the pain. Im going to go to Denver and hopefully get a new set of doctors that will look at me, talk to me, not one of the doctor here has even looked at me, only they looked at their computers. I want to know if there is anything I can do with my left arm tthat is not dead but I have no feeling, no use in it other then the phantom pain. would a new doctor give me a chance and look beyond their computer or is whatever my first doctor said gonna be the only thing they will go off of???
