Yesterday I sent a message to Doc Brutus letting him know that as we expected, I didn't notice any change in pain after my L5/S1 injection and hoped that we could move ahead with the next step without having to have an appointment.
Today I got this:
Doc Brutus received your message. Please see his response below:
"Please let patient know I discussed the case with Dr. CGL. I would like to proceed with another diagnostic nerve block. If she gets relief, she should follow-up with Dr. CGL for potential fusion of the SI joint. Thank you"Great news - I am another step down the line!

And also Ugh. I am in the hands of insurance again. This is about my level of patience...
