I've not posted in a while. I'm the one suffering with the ankle OCD defect.
Had the artho surgery this past April and went to see my first PM dr. since the Ortho advised me too do so and not wanting to treat the pain himself.
Went well with my first PM dr. visit. Helped that I brought copies of my last 5 prescriptions for percocet along with all MRI/CT reports. Also scope photos and surgery report.
The PM dr. prescribed me 30 days at 2 per day. I never have nor will I take more than 2 at one time but my ankle kills. I don't have good days/bad days...I have bad days/worse days.
Question is that a couple of days I took an extra one (6 hours before or later, not in addition to the 2) due to increased pain so I may be 3 days short of the 30 days.
Am I going to get in trouble for that or are we allowed a little extra for those really bad days?
Also on my last visit with ortho, I told them again, and I've been saying since day one that my constant aching pain is lateral (outside) of ankle but the lseion is on the inside. So they listened (finally) and got me another MRI with lateral views. They just called and said I have chronic degenerative peroneal tendinosis and will discuss that on my next visit in 2 weeks.
Thank god something finally explains the lateral pain I've been complaining of since day one but sucks I have 2 bad conditions in this ankle but at least I still have hope of one day being pain free.
Anyway, appreciate any advice on running a couple days short on prescribed meds.
