PaLady, I am with you on your fear of leaving your surgeons office and on the hope that things will improve and the surgery just needs more time to heal. I know when I was first put on oxycontin last year, however great that the pain was controlled, there was this feeling inside that they were giving up on me. And [sychologicaly every time I took the pill it was a reminder that I had a chronic incurabke condition.
After I adjusted to it I realized that the pain medication would only benefit my chance of remission. With lower pain I was in a better space and my body had a chance to rest and at times relax and build back strength.
I dont know that much about
medications, but I do know your body may not be getting the time it needs to rest because the short acting medication goes up and down, never allowing you to get a hold of the pain. long acting medication may give your body that chance to do a littlemore healing.
But I am sure you will know when the time is right for you and maybe it's not quite right yet.
I can understand exactly how your feeling. I would just like to see you feeling better!
Muzz, I am so happy you are able to do more of the things that you would like! I hope the higher dose of lyrica leaves you dancing through the house:)
I had a pretty low pain day today myself, I think it may have been that my little girl(my cat) brought in a baby rabbit and my whole day was consumed with worrying for it because it was a bit injured.
Cutiest little thing you've ever seen. You wouldnt imagine how hard it was to find someone with experience to take it in while it healed, had hubby running all over town!
My little girl is such a vicious killer, she'll bite off your finger if you move it right!
Hope everyone is having a restful low pain night:)
In suffering, we are given the key to a door which most rarely
get to open. Behind it lies the ultimate gift which is only visible
in our darkest hour.
