Hi, I am new here, and have been lurking for quit awhile. I decided to post today. I have had a horrible week. Myself and my three little girls got the stomach flu. I don't know if anyone has had it yet, but it is horrid. Anyway, I was not able to take my pain meds for about 36 hours because of the vomiting. I has some composine(sp?), but still could not keep anything down. Finally my pcp called Zofran in for me, and then I could keep my meds down.
It has been awhile since I have not taken my meds for that length of time and it was the worst experience of my life. I woul rather have given birth. The pain was unbearable. My daughter said I growned and cried in my sleep. I could not move. It scared me so bad!
A little history would help I guess. I have had cp for about 15 years. I take 20mg of opana 2x day and 10mg of Vicodion for breakthrough, along with Neurontin 300mg 3x a day.
I have chronic abdominal pain( right upper quadrant it is classified) along with IBD. Also when I was a kid, I feel off a horse during a rodoe, and hurt my back. I have a degenerative disorder in my back with causes back, hip and knee pain.
Has anyone experience a time like this, or ever been this scared? If I didn't have my pain meds, I would never be able to function. I knew this, but when I actually experienced it this week, it really freaked me out.
Thank you for listening and I sorry this is so long.
Hoping everyone a pain free weekend, or at least a manageable one!
