PA Lady. Thank u for responding. Here is the answers to the questions that u raised. Back when the pharmaceutical company executives pleaded guilty and openly admitted to not being honest to the highly addicitive properties of oxycontin (they were fined $600 million ) my primary has not felt "comfortable" in prescribing me oxycontin. He has tried unsuccesfully over the past year to wean me down due to the chronic overwhelming pain that I have. I suffered a severe burn to a part of my body that has the most nereve endings of a woman's body. enough said? lol Anyway, I am in a job where I am not allowed to take opiates on the job and thought since I was going to be on disabilty anyway, now was the time to try and see how my pain truly was. My primary "tricked" me into thinking that suboxone was a great pain reliever. Boy was he wrong. Men can't understand the delicate pains we have as women especially to the "down there pain". Imagine having a chemical acid over applied to that area??? You can't even imagine the pain and burning. I sit on the pits of hell everyday. I just finished my last surgery and just can't take it. Do you think that a pain specialist will see the reasons for doing this and try to put me back on my dose? I am requesting all my medical records from my primary and I WILL NOT return any of his calls. He called me 3 times today to see how I was coming along. Forget him. He should have told me to see a pain specialist or found one for me insted of leading me down this road of misery. Thank you PA Lady.
Thank you to all that have responded. To answer PaLady, my last surgery was that of a "reconstructive surgery" to allow myself to look normal and to remove excess scar tissue"granuloma" that formed.That went well as I do look normal thus far ( still swollen though). I will take the good advice and return his call promptly today. It's just that I am totally MISERABLE and cannot sleep thus making me edgy. I watched an entire series on cable throughout the night due to the pain. God bless to all that cared to respond. I will most certainly be an active member on this board. I really need the support and kindness that each person offers. Hope everyone slept well last night.
Thanks everyone. Update here. I spoke with my doctor and he said that he would be willing to help me find a pain specialist. He said that he is sorry that I am not getting any relief from the suboxone. He said that I can have all my records and that in all the records, he stated that I never had drug seeking and it was clear to him that I have legitimate pain and that I never asked for more. So, thanks for all the great advice. I am so glad that I found this board. You guys and gals don't even know the graditute I feel. To scarred for life, hope your feeling better and to all my new friends out in cyber support land, may you all have a restful and painless evening. My new problem is severe constipation right now. 3 ducolax hasn't even caused abdominal cramping or anything at all...uugghhh. It feels like my belly is really distended too. I am going to call the doctor. I never had this problem with any other med. This at the current moment is causing me not to want to eat. Feels like I swallowed a bowling ball. I am very thin too and can't afford to lose any weight.
