Thank you so much for thinking of me! You are such a sweetheart. My doctor's visit did go well. I switched back from my pm to my pcp a couple weeks ago, and I absolutely love him, he is so determined to help me. He must have appologized 5 times for putting me through hell this weekend. But he said that it was bound to happen because we had been increasing my oxycontin so much over such a short period of time, and between my sleep deprivation, sensitivity to meds, and the long acting nature of oxycontin, it can build up all at once, which is what happened with me.
He switched me over to oxycodone during the day so that we won't run the risk of another massive build up like what happened this weekend, and for now we slightly decreased my oxycontin at night. I guess this combo should be easier to play with to find my maintainence dose. It's so nice to feel like I have a doctor who is actually going to help me. I just wish everyone here could have doctors like this. I know that I am incredibly lucky. At the end of every visit he always gives me a big hug, and tells me to hang in there & that he is going to get me feeling better & functional again.
I definitely feel better today, but I'm still not myself. I was still pretty shakey this morning, have a nasty headache & my stomach is off, but once I get back on a regular schedule of meds in the next day or so, I should be back to myself.
Thanks again for your thoughts & prayers, I really appreciate it!
