Hi everyone! today i had my block for my foot. It went well, and the foot feels pretty good right now, nice and warm, and looks like i have good circulation in it right now. I have two more every ohter wk.
I talked to the doc about the opana and told them that i just could not tolerate it anymore. I took it for 6 days but the headache/nausea never went away. I also did not have lick of pain relief from it.
My problem is that since i have been here i have learned alot of things about meds that i did not know. That being said, i am nervous to just "suggest" oxycontin. I don't want to come across as "drug seeking". They did not bring it up, and gave me another script for percocet. Which if fine by me, since it works well for my pain, but since i have been on it for years, i do worry about the affects to my liver.
I have never been shy w/ any of my other doctors. I have become very knowledgable w/ my medical issues, and my other meds, and can talk to my doctors w/ no reservations. I have even had doctors tell me how much they apprecieate how much i have taught myself and that i am not afraid to demand outstanding patient care!
I just worry about this "kind" of doctor.....he is the only good doctor in my area, and i would not want to burn any bridges, or step on anyones feet....Does anyone have suggestions of what i could do??? or just i just leave well enough alone?
thanks everyone! shannon
