I did wonder how things went for you afterward. Now I know. : - /
I believe you are fortunate that your pain doctor knew that Methadone would kill
you at that certain point after surgery. Sheesh!
I don't think my pain doctor would know that. I don't think he knows much of anything
Methadone. Another doctor prescribed it to me and then we moved and I
had to change doctors. Methadone is probably why they couldn't sedate me when they
put me in the MRI. I kinda doubted that they had anything in those IV's, but now
I believe they did and I just couldn't feel it.
In some ways we're like pioneers in the Chronic Pain history. I don't know the
story of Methadone but I do know it hasn't been used for pain for so very many
Unfortunately I don't have a good pharmacist anymore. Those are the people who
should know the story. I don't think I'll have to have surgery now - but I dunno.
I'll find out tomorrow.
It's very good to have you back where you belong. I'm kinda glad you're gonna
hang out with us even though your pain is lighter.
When I was giving birth, there was a woman in the next room screaming her head
off. It was distracting. It was just plain rude. I asked the nurses to tell the lady
to be quiet. "It's you who is screaming," they said. Geeze. They gave me the stuff
that makes you forget pain.
So if you forget pain do you really feel it.
