Had an appointment with a new Ortho doctr today.  He was upset that old doc didn't have me in a colar since surgey.  Prescribed Valium for muscle relaxer, soft colar, predisone shots in shoulder muscles, tense unit, therapy and gave me a few more weeks off work.  Over all it was a good appointment.  He listened to me and addressed my concerns.  Said he understood my papin and considered it "normal" and that I am not crazy as my other doctor seems to think. I have an appointment with my surgeon on Thursday and plan on telling him that I am seeing this new guy and letting him off the hook for further treatment.  I have been so stressed over this whole ordeal.  I finally submitted all paperwork for SSDI and for Long Term Disability.  I hope I get approved and can focus on healing and not on lettng people down at work.  I ended up in the Hospital for four days due to an anxiety attack that everyone thought was a heartattack.  It wasn't and I am fine but need to work on ways to manage stress.
