After reading your posts I think that I may need to get new pain management. I am prescribed 12 Methadone
a day. I've been on that amount for about
9 months. My doctor never gets "creative" or prescribes breakthru pain
medicine. If I complain of pain, he just says, "You need to get the pump." I have to drive two hours every two
months to get Xanax. My pain doctor won't prescribe it because it's not a usual thing to mix with Methadone.
(Problem is that I've taken Xanax for over twenty years. It would be really hard to go off of and it helps so
much when I panic over my pain situation)
I don't WANT the pump. I'm afraid of the pain I'd go through as the doctor was learning to relieve my pain. I am
afraid of a lot of things with it. Momto6boys, I know you're waiting for yours. You're in a better place for your
body to accept it and your needs are different from mine. I think it will work out well for you.
I was prescribed the Methadone when I was going to a different doctor. I don't think my current doctor knows
just how tricky Methadone is.
I swear my pain doctor never talks to me. He just sings. Ooooooh! I'm so worried. Last time I went I was the
last patient of the day and he had three attorneys in the waiting room waiting to speak to him.
This post is kind of blah blah blah. I'm a mess. My neck feels like it's going to snap. The stocks! Ohhhh!
I'll probably read this tomorrow and be sorry.
