So i am having a scope done tomorrow and the nurse from the endo lab called to go over a history and current meds I am on.  I was giving her the long list and got to my Norco-10/352... she asked me how often I took it and I said I can take it up to 4 times a day- but usually I take 1 tab 3 times a day.  She replied- EVERYDAY... um yes usually I have a lot of pain.  She said that was a lot and I take it too often.  excuse me... It is a Rx I get, I have real pain- this just made me so mad.  Some people don't get it.  Sometimes I want to just shoot people the finger and get a hotel room to be alone...lol.  Don't tell me to take some pepto when my stomach is upset!
Ugh... thanks for letting me vent!
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck

You will always get the odd nurse/doctor that takes that stance. I put it down to them not knowing
your full history. She was an endo nurse, chances are she hadn't even read your notes!!
As long as your prescribing doc knows and cares and wouldn't worry about the small people:=)

Thanks Vicky- it just irritates me! I know- I need to not care what others think!

sigh...I really get concerned when the doctor has your disease and says it is really not that bad! Tells you to modify your diet...etc. Seriously I cried, I was so mad and in no shape to do anything about it.
